    Saw this article in the sun today and couldnt beleive what i was reading

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2007090577,00.html

    This is a little snippet of the article

    She spends all her £10-a-week pocket money on Galaxy and said: “I’m just not interested in spending my money on DVDs, toys or pretty clothes like other little girls. From the moment I get up to the moment I go to bed I think about Galaxy bars.

    This kid needs help and I hate to say it but it's gonna take very drastic meaures

    Was thinking that myself but i do'nt think stopping her pocket money would be the solution.

    There was a progamme on last year with Paul McKenna and he had a woman who was obsessed with all things chocolate and it was getting so bad her health was at risk but paul put under hypnosis and convinced her that chocolate tasted so bad she'd be sick

    perhaps this would help

    or send her to fat camp

    I think its disgusting, Cadburys is much nicer than Galaxy :wink: Only joking!!!

    I can't believe these parents are so pathetic, when I was growing up & told No, it meant No & God forbid you if you argued!. We were allowed one small bar of chocolate a week (mini Milky Way usually) & that was it.
    These people are very good at blaming everyone else apart from themselves. The mother of Connor blames doctors for not helping :shock: for crying out loud!

    well something deff needs to be done
    starting with giving her mum a slap!!

    I mean she is 8 yrs old which is the age girls start noticeing how they look etc...
    I bet the poor little thing is picked on at school and i don't think her being in the national papers is gonna help 1 little bit, it seems to me the entire family need re-educating on eating habits

    Children are suffering through parents being ingnorant but surley its not that hard to work out £10 on sweets + no excersise= obese and unhappy child
    What the hell is wrong with people :evil:
