A Weighty Issue

Posted on | June 21, 2011 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
A new family recently moved into our neighborhood and they seem like very nice people. The problem is that both parents are very heavy and they are raising 2 children (ages 8 and 10) who are on the same path to obesity. Is there anything that I can do to help? Yes, I can bring over healthy snacks but that doesn’t stop them from eating thousands of calories of junk food. Any advice?  I’m worried about them.

Dear H.E.:
This is a national problem. Information about weight control and exercise and healthy eating is hard to avoid. Stay out of it — unsolicited advice is likely to have painful consequences.
