      Not always the case but a large majority of the time, you're correct.

        I'd have to hazard a guess of around 72% (of this being the case) - based on my work experience at the paediatrics ward at my local hospital.

          If that was at all true we'd have the same percentage of overweight people we always had because thin parents would have thin children and there were more thin parents 2 generations ago than today... Arguably we'd even be getting thinner since fat is usually seen as unattractive and the less attractive you are the less likely you are to procreate.

            Get your kids exercise related stuff instead of the lollies and the junk food. It's the only way how to stop obesity in kids is to get them to exercise daily.

              No but really it does happen because either way the parents love fast food outlets and going out for dinners instead of looking at the healthier options.
              I will give you an example. My nieces and nephews are all under the age of 15. Their parents made a deal with them. They told their kids that they must have some sporting things to do like swimming, basketball, soccer, athletics and some awesome hobbies they like to do, ballet, gymnastics. Just to get them healthy. They then were allowed to pick up the snacky foods they are allowed to eat. As long as they were playing sport and doing healthy stuff they can have their lollies and occasional junk food.
              They play outside with their friends always doing activities, walking their dogs.
