Rich Diet Is Child Neglect and Responsible People
Need to Act
 

In England, obesity has been a factor in at least 20 child protection cases in the last year.1 The British Medical Association (BMA) just rejected a call for the parents of young obese children, under 12, to be charged with neglect.2 At this meeting held in Torquay, England on June 25 to 29, 2007, a representative said, “If parents will not or cannot take responsibility to provide the right diet and encourage exercise for their children after engaging with doctors and dietitians, we believe that this is a form of child neglect.
