Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

Obesity is the new normal for American children.  Unfortunately, obesity starts in the womb with fetal programming.  The epigenetic marks set during pregnancy will last a lifetime.  If you want to prevent childhood obesity, controlling the diet of the mother is essential.  I guess this gives a new definition of a nanny state.
