Its strange, when I was a kid, there were all kinds of skinny kids like I was in my grade, and a couple of heavy seones. We have the same food then, as we do now. Nothing foodwise has changed, other than removal of trans fats and whatnot. Now there are all sorts of heavy set kids left and right. I blame the internet and all its evilness. Yet, I use it all the time. No wonder I am no longer as thin as I was a kid.
Seriously though, its not the food, its the internet. When I was growing up, I had dolls, the outdoors, and playing with my dolls IN the outdoors (okay, I also had board games, various other toys, and books for rainy days but that's besides the point). I remember many a summer evening running around catching fireflies and many days just plain running about to the point where I was dead tired at night.
Now a days, kids just sit around watching TV and playing around on the internet, not moving and not being active. Its not the food that's the problem here people, its the inactivity. If parents would stop texting each other on their smartphones and get off their lazy rears and get their kids up and outside every day, then childhood obesity wouldn't be an issue.
