National Health Emergency

Dear Short Answers:
Last week when I was in the grocery store, I saw a mother with her four very, very fat children. As she loaded her cart with candy and sugary cereals and potato chips, I wanted so badly to say something to her but I didn’t.  I am still thinking about it and certainly not sure what I could have said.  Is there any way to be helpful in a situation like this?  I even considered buying some healthy food and giving it to her for free.

Dear Concerned:
Childhood obesity is now an epidemic. The causes and the solutions are very complex. Sorry, no short answer.
