70 steps? I have two.

The feds have released a report that lists 70 steps to fight “childhood obesity”.

70 steps? I don’t even have to look at it to know that it’s doomed to failure.

My plan to stop childhood obesity has only two steps.

1. Don’t feed your kids crap.

2. Turn off the damned TV and make them go outside.

Do those two things and I promise your kids won’t be fat.

Of course my plan, while guaranteed to work, doesn’t get to spend billions of taxpayer dollars and then fail “requiring” even more spending of taxpayer money plus a fat bureaucracy to manage it.

Guess which plan they’ll probably go with.

    Burn more calories than you take in. Result? Weight loss. It’s not rocket science.

    Since they won’t stop whining about it, I’d like to see some geography along with the data. Odds are the kids who stay inside are better off being fat than perforated in the crossfire of some gang turf battle.

    When I was little I was more likely to be scolded for showing up late to supper, with briers stuck in my clothes and swamp water in my new sneakers.

    But… but… that will be child abuse now! You can’t break their poor little spirits by not giving them everything they want… And MAKE them go outside in the heat and sun… why you meanie… sigh…

    The “Stop Putting So Much Crap In Your Cakehole, Pudgy!” diet is damaging to the little butterballs’ self-esteem.

    And telling parents they can do it themselves without Gracious Government is damaging to the nanny-state’s self-esteem.
