The first time I saw one, I felt physically ill -- a billboard with a sad-looking, chubby little boy, dressed in drab, too-tight clothing with the slogan: “Being fat takes the fun out of being a kid.”

Instead of shame, these kids and their parents need education and access to better food.

I agree. What you have said I have thought a million times. Healthy food is more expensive to buy. I know I have found that to be true b/c I spend more money now in groceries than I did before when I wasn't striving for us to eat healthier.
