Nanny's Fat Police On The Prowl

Nanny's fat police have caused some distress to Olivia Lyndsay, an 11 year old, who had the misfortune to be weighed and measured by the fat police (as part of Nanny's National Child Measurement Programme) at her school Trewirgie Junior in Redruth.

Their conclusion was that she exceeded Nanny's BMI, which was then communicated in a letter. This in turn so upset Olivia, that she stopped eating for two days.

Her mother, Amelya (a fitness instructor) is quoted by the Telegraph:
"It is unbelievable how much damage can be done by this programme.

We never eat processed foods as I am always really careful of our diets, having a background in nutrition. 
They never bothered to investigate what my background was, despite staff being aware of what I actually do for a living.

Olivia is now 158cm tall and was one of the tallest children in her year.

After receiving the letter she was so distraught, I had to pull out my notes from university to convince her that she has no problem as she refused to eat anything for two days."
I concur that BMI is bollocks, the best way to determine if you are fat is to measure your gut.

However, that aside, Olivia's upset could have been avoided if her amother had not told her the contents of the letter from the fat police.

You see dear readers, the letter was addressed to Olivia's mum; and as such it was down to her mum whether she told her the results or not!

    There is an additional problem in this type of approach which, I suspect, few have thought about.
    With more and more children living in broken homes and with more and more pressure on them to comply to this or that "norm" by Nanny and the media, there is likely to be a problem with kids developing severe eating disorders which can lead to their own problems in themselves.

    I agree that the mother should perhaps chose not to share the information in the letter with her child but, I would have told the school to mind it's own bloody business!
