Who is feeding these kids?

The latest study, published April 7 in JAMA Pediatrics, has found that ALL categories of child obesity in the US have increased over the last 14 years. This flies in the face of Michelle Obama’s very recent claim to have reduced child obesity by 43% in 4 years with her programs. Worse than this, extreme obesity is rising the fastest and is associated with heart disease and diabetes risk in children and adolescents. Around 30% of US children were overweight in 2012 and 17.3% of children ages 2-19 were classified obese with 2.1% extremely obese. To put this in stark perspective, in 1974 only 4.0% of children were obese. Fast foods along with cheap and highly superficial processed foods are mostly to blame. Don’t these children know how to feed themselves? Oh wait, they don’t.

Now I ask you; is this the kid's fault?
