I think weight overall (obesity, "normal" and underweight) and children's eating habits and the food supply available to them needs to be continually a priority in research and in clinical settings.
But I think the stigma danger arises because we focus so much on obesity only in our culture. Children who are underweight and "normal" weight (e.g., within normal parameters whatever that is) are also important.
Obesity is just a word. Children are people and all people are important.
Guess I am expressing a pet peeve. The world does not revolve around obesity. Achieving a healthy weight is important to every child's well being, whatever their size.
Resolved in 2014 to remain below 120!
