‘Fat Letter’ From School Sparks Outrage Mom Is Fighting Back [VIDEO]
'Fat letters' from schools..about the second dumbest program I have watched schools adopt. This mama bear is a bit upset.
Her daughter came home from school with a body mass index letter labeling her as overweight. 11-year-old Lily is on the school volleyball team and eats healthy foods. The so-called fat letter, is the result of a body mass index screening, given to Lily by officials at school.
Similar screening programs have been embraced by schools. The parent thinks they're a terrible idea. She would like to see bmi testing in schools banned. These tests can trigger an eating disorder.
Florida officials said the screenings, quote, "provide valuable information to parents and help ensure that students are healthy and ready to learn". Do you think they're a good idea?
