We're at risk of raising supersized kids who may live sicker and die younger than the generation before them.
Many parents believe their child's excess weight is just "baby fat." They've concluded their child is normal after eyeballing his or her overweight peers. This is a serious misconception. An overweight child usually grows up to be an obese adult.
"Our Supersized Kids" profiles four families whose grade school children are overweight or obese. Each of these families are actively working to help their child turn around an out-of-control weight gain. The documentary highlights their struggles and successes, along with providing helpful tips from Pediatricians.
