Fat Friends Don't Make You Look Thin

Fat friends make you get fat. Is it any surprise that peer pressure will affect a child's weight, along with everything else? It's not like kids are on the playground saying, "C'mon, Shelly! Eat that donut! What's the matter, are you chicken? Hey, a chicken sandwich would be pretty tasty right now..." However, there's a correlation between a child's weight and the weight of its friends.

I wouldn't call the study groundbreaking based on the overview that I've read, but it looks like they've proven fat kids end up having fat friends. So, if you want your kid to be skinny, keep him from having fat friends. You should probably also keep him from making friends with loose morals.
