DD took Tony, 3 years, and Alex, 4 months, to the DR for their checkups and and vaccines. Both boys are in the 75% in height and 23% in weight. DD said she didn't think the boys were thin. The DR said that children had gotten so big that what use to be normal was now 25%. The DR then said the boys were both very happy and their weight was right where she wanted to see it.
I'm a cashier at Wal-Mart. I think I see the problem. Mothers buying meal supplements for children as young as 5 because their child won't eat meals and I look at the child and he has a canister of chips. Parents checking out with $40 in bags of candy and chips. We have tablets for children as young as 3 so they can play games and watch movies.
