Aubry Gordon’s opinion article “Leave Fat Kids Alone” (New York Times, 2020) presents the impact of words on a child’s body image and mental health when it comes to weight. The overarching theme of the article is that while it is important to help children maintain a healthy weight that does not mean saying whatever comes to mind without thought of how it will impact the child. This blog article will respond to and expand on the points raised by Gordon, with the ideas reflecting those of Dr. Sarita Dhuper here at Live Light Live Right.

In particular, active children have higher levels of cardiorespiratory fitness, stronger muscles and bones, and lower body fat than inactive children. Being involved in physical activity from a young age is associated with decreased long-term morbidity and all-cause mortality as an adult.
