Eating healthy is one thing.. a 7 year old on a diet? c’mon.

So I just read an article on Today.com about a woman who put her 7 year old on a diet. While I understand at 7 years old she was considered overweight.. could one propose that her “weight loss” was because she freaking was 7 and grew? According to Children’s Hospital of Stanford, children ages 6-12 on average grow 2.5 inches a year. Not to be judgmental here but what kid wouldn’t grow 5 inches and slim down?

Ridiculous. Teach your kids healthy habits, don’t encourage CHILDREN to go on diets, be smart people. Put down the fast food, the soda and the chips and take your kids outside. Snack on a flipping carrot and call it a day.
