I stopped by SWF’s Still Working On Me Blog and learned a new word. – Diabeating.  What follows is the definition from the Urban Dictionary.

Diabeating your kids: When parents feed their young children, who do not know better or aren’t given any healthy options, pure crap, resulting in juvenile onset diabetes. This should be considered child abuse.

Mom to already obese kid: Now what do you want for dinner? McDonald’s, KFC, or Pizza Hut?

Obese Kid: We already had Pizza Hut for breakfast, and KFC for lunch, so let’s go to McDonald’s!

Mom to already obese kid: Ok, well get whatever you like sweetie!

Obese Kid: I want two double bacon cheese burgers, a large chocolate shake, and a large Coke.

Mom: Are you sure that’s enough honey?

Obese Kid: Yeah….

Mom to Drive-Thru Attendant: He’s going to need more than that, make that 4 double bacon cheeseburgers, and a large fry, large milkshake, and large Coke.

Drive-Thru Attendant: Damn lady! You should stop diabeating your kids!


New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg has set his cap on banning Super Sized sweet drinks throughout the City.  Although I agree with him that these are terrible, I am not sure that the direction he is going is the right one.

Maybe he should just have his office of Child Protective Services file Child Abuse charges against the parents of all overweight children for Diabeating their kids. 

What’s your opinion?
