Child 1lb Overweight Sent Obesity Warning

A child has been sent a letter warning he faces a future of cancer and obesity because he weighs one pound more than NHS guidelines suggest.

Mother Michala Forder said she was “furious” her son Zac, five, was labelled overweight by health workers.

She believes he should not have received the catalogue of health warnings about heart disease and diabetes as he is clearly fit and healthy.

    As we move towards Nationalized healthcare, stories like this will be less shocking. Children above certain norms will not be given letters but special lunches at school.
