I dont care if their adults that are fat, but when i see children that are obese it pisses me off to no end! i dont understand why ppl think that fat babies/toddles/children are cute. When the children are facing to have diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and such in the long run! if an adult doesnt care then so be it its their choice but dont ruin a childs future by feeding them crap for food. A child slowly dying is not cute!

so my question is to you all do you think fat is cute?

 

NO bashing of others or their children please its just a question

ok so i finished reading the replies and first off by fat i didnt mean medical issues, genetics and such it was more of a health question. for those who said that they dont judge by looks...seriously?...everyone around the world is judged by looks i bet their isnt one day that someone doesnt look at someone and doesnt pass judgement! and i didnt mean little chubby monkey babies i mean the really obese babies u know the ones! ( mommy is too busy to pick up the baby to soothe so instead she shoves bottle after bottle in his face just to shut him up)

ooh and for the mom who said i was only passing judgement im doing research for school im pre med so dont think i just decided to go on here and say crap about ppl...cuz if i worded it wrong then sorry but i was mad at the time! ooh and everyone is entitled to their own opinions u said ur so be gone!

back to homework will be back later!

chubby cherubs will always be cute.  but obese kids are just depressing...like the girls on desperate housewives...not cute at all.

well all my kids were chubby, excluding my middle child, he was skinny as they come. my kids were never so fat that it was unhealthy though, and once they started walking, they thin out.

so really it depends.

I think it is sad...very very sad. And it makes me angry when I see the parents who are also overweight...and they are stuffing their cart or face with junk.

So now ya'll are bashing kids?

Base everything on looks-

Seems health would override everything-

You don't know what health problems a child could have or what medications they are taking-

To judge anyone by a grocery basket, what in the world?

Not the least of which-It's NOT your business!

i think it is sad because it will be a hard life for them. but people can be very mean about. my dd was on steroids for a long time, she got chunky and she got a "moon face" really fat cheeks. people gave me dirty looks sometimes. or looked at her weird. it also made her face and arms hairy,not like a man hairy, but more hair than usual,  so they could have been doing it because of that. but you can never know why a child is the way they are.
