School Obesity Causes Eating Disorders

The University of Michigan has concluded that school based programs designed to reduce obesity have failed and promote other kinds of eating disorders.

Using guilt and shame to promote "healthy eating' is bound to fail. I do not know of a single government sponsored program that achieved its goals. The DARE program has failed to prevent drugs, the suicide prevention programs have failed to prevent suicide and so on. When will we ever learn no to throw money and pressure at kids? It far too often promotes "Stinking Thinking". Teach your kids how to defeat depression and anxiety and they will eat better.
