You know what troubles me most about this??
These are kids. Just because they are overweight now does not mean they will remain that way. TV trash talk shows in the US even have shows about this, people who were fat, awkward, "geeky" who eventually grow up and look like super models. Just because these kids are overweight right now does that mean they will stay that way. Carrying around a few extra pounds does not automatically mean poor health and is not a sign of neglect.

Good, making your kids fat is a form of child abuse.
They will likely stay fat all their life and have health problems.
If you want to keep your kids, teach them to eat properly instead of feeding them crap to keep them quiet.
