S/O: If a program were to be implemented to help parents with Obese children what guidelines do you believe should be implemented?

There was an article in another post about the possibility of CPS being able to step in and take away obese children from their parents. I don't think anyone on the post agreed that CPS should be able to remove the children from their homes, however a lot suggested other ideas, such as seeking a nutritionists, a reform camp, therapy, etc.
So if CPS were going to step in, what are some programs you believe would be most effect? What should be the guidelines or qualifications for these programs (for instance should the doctors have to report the obesity, should teachers? At what age do you start implementing the programs? At what weight? Etc).
(note: this is all hypothetical, based off a spin off of another question, I'm just curious if you could make the decision what you would suggest to do)

  • I saw this. It is really sad they do not implement more programs to help people not threaten to take away their kids.Teach people about good eating and help them to choose good foods.If a Dr. believes a child to be in danger they should report it. There has to be solutions, not just punishments.
