"You can blame the childhood obesity epidemic on many factors, but the ultimate responsibility lies with parents," says Michelle. "It's crazy, really - we all know what we should be eating. There are no secrets out there. How many times have you heard someone say, 'I shouldn't be eating this, but...' as they stuff another piece of banana bread in their mouth? If we accept that we all pretty much know what we should and shouldn't be eating to maintain a healthy weight, then isn't regularly feeding a child junk food and not teaching them how to eat well at some level a form of child abuse? I put it to you that it is... So if we know that parental responsibility for a child's weight starts even before conception, how can we justify the notion that their responsibility is in any way diminished during a child's early life?"
