Lack of food=obesity? Really?

When you look at this child, what do you think?  I can say that I first thought, “Please, parents, give him something else besides Mcdonald’s and cookies all the time?” 

Now I wonder, “Is that the only types of food his parents can afford?” 

People think that obesity stems from over-eating.  Sometimes that is true, but the opposite is also found to be true.  Sometimes, all parents have time to do is run by the local fast food restaurant after spending all of their time working two jobs just to keep a roof over their child’s head and clothes on their back.  Sometimes there is no money left over for healthy foods and lifestyles.
