@ChoosingChange @brandik I'm all for healthy kids but this goes a little too far, IMHO.

There is some evidence that sensible steps, like changes to WIC that make fruits and vegetables more available, are helping reduce weight problems in young children. Making sure that kids have safe places to play could help. Looking at ways to revamp food assistance to help families make better choices could too. I'm all for smart steps like this, but let's ditch the hysteria, fat-shaming, and perfectionism. It isn't helping.
