    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I'd have to say that the parents are partly to blame for giving them whatever they want, but also society for having a mcdonalds around every corner and having it priced so low so that parents who really can't afford much just spend ten dollars and feed the whole family and then some. Commercials have some part in it but I think that the parents just need to step up and start making healthy dinner instead of taking the easy way out.

And on top of that whatever amount is left over after ten years is dropped. But I could be wrong so don't get your hopes up.
    What country?

    They sure have and I don't blame the students either revolting. Students have to take loans out already, that they have to pay back later. This new government decision will put them even more into dept.

    Crazy if you ask me, and you can't blame the students for rioting in the UK over it. And it miffs me no end, that the banks have now become "very picky" who they give loans out too, another very touchy subject.
    I had a teacher who's still paying back her student load She left uni at least 10 years ago.

    The students over here have begun a revolt - over money being spent on the military, such that tuition fees are tripled in some cases, and fees for students going up in general.

    They won't. They're already blaming the gov't for the mess.
