If You're An Overweight Mom in the U.S., Your Child is 15 Times More Likely to Be Obese

Dr John La Puma

If your 4 year old is overweight, there’s an awfully good chance Baby will be overfat at age 6 — and the object of scorn and derision, cruelly.

But you can make a difference for yourself with small changes that make a big difference. If you’re an overweight Mom, you need one-on-one help with your own weight.
