A program in England says school children's parents should be called and notified if their child is considered to be too fat. 

According to the Daily Mail Online, public health officials believe school nurses should call parents with advice on how their kids can lose weight if the child is considered to be obese. This comes as another health agency says overweight kids should be given free Weight Watchers sessions for 12-weeks. 

The plans would also apply to kids considered to be underweight. What do you think of the program? Weigh in on our Facebook Page and join the debate.
