Stop punishing kids for gaining weight and end weight stigma

This petition is highly misleading. From the court proceedings cited by this petition: "concerns have been raised about the children’s weight, about their poor hygiene, and about the home conditions", " The children’s personal presentation was poor, with dirty nails and, for D, tangled hair. There was concern about body odour in relation to C. Every effort had been made by the Local Authority to encourage regular washing and teeth-brushing but to no avail.", there was bullying in school due to poor hygiene, neglect and unsanitary conditions at the home. Please stop making it about weight only. Read the court statement. Also, obesity is a serious illness, with severe consequences, not a dirty word.
