http://www.onlykent.com/20080609/18-...-a-4-year-old/Fears are growing for an 18 month old baby that has been raised on chips and is the size of a 4 year old. The Childs mum has defended feeding her 18-month-old daughter a diet of chips even though the child weighs as much as a four-year-old. Angela Boswell who is 33 and from Manchester has said that little Courtney, who is already 2st 2lbs, will grow up to be healthy.
It’s said that her diet even sometimes extends in chocolate, crisps, cereal and Coca-Cola but she steers clear of her greens. Angela said that “I’ve tried giving her healthy food but she won’t eat it. She might have a banana sometimes, or yoghurt, but she won’t touch vegetables - she picks them up and throws them. Most of all she loves chips. I ate a lot of chips in chocolate sauce when I was pregnant with her so maybe it comes from that. I think she’ll be fine when she’s older - I’m not worried at all. People say she’s getting podgy because her tummy sticks out a bit, but it’s just a bit of puppy fat and she will grow out of it.”
Nutritionist Jeanette Jackson has said that “This really is very bad, this poor child. She is only 18 months and already she is chronically obese.”
I would love to smack that woman upside her head.
