Watched this programme last night. It focused on very overweight children being ‘treated’ if that’s the right word, at a specialist unit in a Bristol Hospital. It used not just consultants, but psychologists, social workers and nurses, all geared to helping the kids, and more importantly, the families, to develop better eating and exercise regimes, to avoid huge health problems in the future. One young teenage lad was already suffering hip issues and had to have an operation.
The three children they focused on had either their mothers or grandmother with them, no sign of any dads, which seemed sad,
Hopefully by the end they all seemed to be making some progress.
One five year old girl was identified with a faulty gene, causing her to be constantly hungry, and when older, medication could be given to help sort it.
