And now, from the Department of the Blindingly Obvious, this report:

CNN reports that fat children are more likely to get bullied than their peers of normal weight.

Too true, and all too sad, and it is a growing problem. - Here's what to do about it:

Tell the truth about what causes child obesity.There is altogether too much misinformation about child obesity. - When children become fat it is essentially because they are eating salty food. Children are especially vulnerable to salt because of their small size and small blood volume, and because their blood vessels are weaker than those of adults. Salt, and the water it attracts to it, can more easily distend weak blood vessels than fully mature ones. The resulting increase in blood volume and other fluid retention results in weight gain, as well as higher blood pressure and many other undesirable consequences. The smaller the child, the less salt they should have - and a baby, of course, should have no salt at all. - Babies can die if they are fed salty food.

Fat children do not need to go onto a diet or to be pressed into uncongenial exercise. As far as possible, they need to avoid salt and salty food. They do not need to cut down on calories or eat low-fat junk full of strange fillers and iffy chemicals. They need to eat real food - fresh food - not processed, high profit, low nutrition food.
