Parents to Blame for Childhood Obesity

Livescience.com is reporting that a new study suggests that parents play a huge role in the growing obesity problem among young children and teenagers.

According to the research, "adolescents are more likely to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day if their parents do. Contrarily, teens whose parents eat fast food or drink soda are more likely to do the same."

Which means, if your child is starting to look like the kid in the photo above, you may have yourself to blame!
