Dr. Kantor recently discussed “Fat Letters” with WSVA Radio of Harrisonburg, VA. These are letters that are being sent home to parents in 19 states, which let them know that their child/children have an unhealthy body mass index or BMI. Dr. Kantor believes that we should give the schools credit for doing something towards helping our youth get healthy. Although the BMI measurement is far from 100% accurate, it is good that schools are addressing that there is a problem. We have to start educating children about health and nutrition in our schools, parents need to be educated as well, and at least this is a start. If we scold the schools for their actions, they will end up doing nothing, which is much worse.
