Remember how banning junk food in schools was supposed to make fat kids thin? Guess what? No, it doesn’t. At least not according to “Competitive Food Sales in Schools and Childhood Obesity: A Longitudinal Study” in Sociology of Education (January 2012).
But of course we should’ve thought it would, right? It’s not like “Snack food intake does not predict weight change among children and adolescents” was published in International Journal of Obesity in August 2004, right? And there wasn’t any studies about “energy-dense snack food” not being correlated with weight gain in adolescents either…right? Wrong.
Once again, America is continuing to do the same thing (that didn’t work) to try to prevent fat kids. And yet, fat kids exist. Time to ban fat marriage?
