Obese families

I am going to sound like a total B#$CH here but oh well.

We have a community pool in our neighborhood and everytime I go (today included) I notice VERY overweight kids ages 2 and up with their over weight parents.  I am not talking chubby or slightly overweight, I mean OBESE, parents and their kids alike. 

Usually I give them (and others in other circumstances) the benefit of the doubt.  Maybe glandular, genetics, thyroid, etc etc etc.  UNTIL  I witnessed the following since the start of summer at this pool.

Pizza being ordered and delivered to the pool for themselves and their kids who were again, all obese.

Another time, a 20 pack of tacos from taco bell for a family of 3.  Yes 3, and they ate it all (kid was maybe 5 or 6).

Another family brought take out of chicken fried steak and all the fixins (mashed potatoes, gravy, french fries and sugary sodas).

Today, a family ordered enough KFC to feed an army and ate all of it.  THEN ordered pizza for their kids who already ate the KFC, and were still "hungry."

I mean, come the F on.  It makes me mad when I see a 3 or 4 yr old breathing heavy simply from walking from point A to B at the pool or anywhere else due to their weight. 

I am NOT saying everyone that is obese is like this, but this is what I have noticed lately. 

Shoot me.  I am done.

Fat children make me angry.Its usually a direct result of lazy parenting.I don't understand why you wouldn't want to put an effort to teach your kids healthy living.

 We're not even allowed to eat anything more than sandwiches at our pool.  I know someone like that. She is very overweight and admits to feeding her kids crap because she "doesn't know how to eat healthy." Her kids range in size, but they are all big. I think it's a lame excuse personally. There are so many ways of educating yourself on healthy eating nowadays.

Well, it's not a private pool so maybe that's why. They sell drinks and snacks, though. But, we feed the kids before we go.
