What do you think state health officials should do to reduce childhood obesity?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 23, 2006
“They should encourage teachers to stop giving young children candy as a reward and cut down on the fried foods in the lunchroom.”
“I think it all starts at home. If you feed them junk food every day, they’ll want to eat it every day. It’s difficult to make a difference if they can eat whatever they want at home.”
“They should start more awareness programs for kids and parents with public information that would be out there all the time.”
“I don’t think they can. I think it comes from the family, not from a state official.”
