It's well known that childhood obesity is an epidemic in this country.
You probably have seen kids that are overweight and thought to yourself, "That's so sad. Why can't parents feed their kids healthier foods?"
But what if you received a letter from your child's school saying your child is overweight? What would your reaction be?
It's a new trend in schools to monitor kids' weight. BMI tracking lets parents know if their child is on the edge of obesity.
These "fat letters" can be very unnerving.
But, they can also spark communities into action to tackle this issue and help children be healthier, fitter, and more in tune with good nutrition.
Special guest, Dr. Corinn Cross, MD, shares helpful advice on what parents need to know and how to follow up if you receive one of these letters.
