« Arkansas Health Plan Sees Higher Costs Result From Unhealthy Behaviors | Main | Future Fast Food Near Schools – Fat Chance »


hi Scott, I was initially worried about that too, but I think the tradeoff is worth it and they seem to have addressed that concern. From what we know, the weight information going home to parents will be more than a standard report - it'll have recommendations and suggestions for parents, which presumably will be much more than just warnings. And, though it'll be difficult to get warnings, earlier intervention is positive in that it's easier to respond then, and act..

I hope that they are also providing pointers to some mental health resources for families to turn to. I can imagine that for some children (possibly depending on their age?) a "warning flag" of being too heavy may have some psychological fallout too.
