    Angry Gov't takes kid when mom refused to give him junk food

    Social workers took a 2-year-old U.K. boy into care after his mother refused to give him junk food.
    Zak Hessey was 17 pounds, 6 ounces when his mother Lisa took him to hospital, telling doctors he was a "fussy eater" and not gaining weight.
    Doctors said he should weigh 19 pounds, 8 ounces, and advised the mother of five to bulk him up on chips, chocolate and cakes.
    When she said no, social workers were called in and her son was put into foster care to assess if his eating improved.

    this is a nightmare...

    social workers say the parents are kind, loving parents...the kid was just a picky eater. now, after a long court battle, and finally getting their kid back, all he wants to eat is junk food, and hes only 8 ounces heavier. are you kidding me?

    there would be hell to pay

    and what kind of doctor tells a mother to have her 2 year old gain weight by eating unhealthy food. just find something the kid likes, and stick with it while attempting to introduce new foods. when hes hungry, he will eat. supplement with flinstones vitamins if necessary. maybe i should have gone to medical school.
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.


    the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink

    This is just ridiculous and a waste of services & personnel. I am sure there are kids out there who are in much more need.

    Wow. As much as I hate to say this, I'd be suing someone.

    That's what this country is coming to. I'm glad my kids are grown and gone.

    No sweat, its England; they do screwy things like this. Also drive on the wrong side of the road and have Lucas Refrigerators.
