Poll: What are your thoughts on Toddler Plus Size Clothing?

Posted on: August 5, 2010


I saw this link on Dr.Mehmet Oz’s fan page, and got devastated when I read this post. Some British retailer is selling large sized  clothing for kids who are Obese! In my opinion I am totally against it because the fact that these kids reached the stage of obesity is a mistake. Now when kids discover that there is clothing that matches their size it will be more convenient to them and this issue will encourage them to not lose that excess weight. I put up a poll I chose a few answers from what Dr. Mehmet Oz’s fans shared you can choose one or just add your own answer. I would love to hear your thoughts.

One of the dozens of problems facing obese children is finding appropriate clothing in their sizes. Especially for elementary girls, simply “going up” a few sizes is not appropriate. A juniors’ large or ladies’ medium will not fit nearly as well as a girls’ 20 (or whatever self-esteem-protecting name they choose). Adult sizes are not designed for children, and are usually very immodest on a 9-year-old. I’ve worked with girls in the past who were sent to the office to put on a t-shirt because they came to school wearing a sagging, low-cut, busty top that was too tight around the middle. It’s a shame that parents make poor choices, and that kids aren’t more active, but it’s not fair to our kids to not offer appropriate clothing options.
