Is it the kids fall or the parents?
I am taking an internship in a kindergarten, and honestly, I am choked of the lunch, that the parents prepare for their kids.
The kids are in the age of 3-5, and have daily chocolate, cake, butter and other sugary things in there lunch packets. This have making me look back to my childhood. Why did I get to be that big as a kid?
My parents has always been telling me, that I got to be that big, not because we ate unhealthy at home, but because I ate to much.
I do know that I always have been eating a lot. In the age of 10, I eat like a grown up man. Though I have to go against my parents, and say that, we didn't eat that healthy at home. It was quite comment to get cake and other sweet stuff more than one time a week. Fast food here specially Pizza was also often to find at the dinner table.
I will probably never be able to prove, what the reason to my over weight is, but no matter what I do believe that it is the parents responsibilities, to make sure that their kids, live a healthy life with out over weight.
My parents has always used the excuse, that I was stubborn and wouldn't listing to them. Which is true.
Thought I still think they should have stopped med in an earlier age. I believe that they could have done a difference for my over weight. My parents has been trying to help me loosing weight before. Both by paying a nutritionist to help me with the food and by paying a gym. I am thank full for all of these thing but where the support really should have been. Was in the kitchen at home. Buying cake, ice cream and other unhealthy things isn't something that helps me loosing weight. I know I don't have to eat it!! But hey that isn't easy. If there wasn't unhealthy food in the kitchen I wouldn't been able to eat it!
So my hope for all the parents out there! Take the responsibility for your kids and make sure they get a healthy start on their life!
I love my parents and know how proud they are of my weight loss. I don't blame them for my overweight but I would have wished that they never had letting me gain so many kilos. Life as a fat girl hasn't always been easy.
