The number of kids actually on the football team is minimal when you look at the schools total. Whats making the kids fat in my mind aunt spiker, they sit on the school bus, <we walked to school> The sit most of the day in school, the come home eat and sit again till dinner, then sit again till bedtime...then some on the weekend sit and play WOW and playstation all weekend...they just arent moving like they used too...like someone else said we had our fat kids...but it wasnt and epidemic.
Schools cannot and should not be responsible for your kids, WE ARE the ones that chose to bring them in this world.
Parents that are too lazy to cook a balanced healthy meal everyday and order delivery, pizza, chinese.
If we want to stop this obesity epidemic...two things have to happen, kids have to get OFF their ass and Parents have to make them and make sure when they are home they arent eating garbage. 160 days of one meal in school cannot change obesity in my mind
