Teaching You to Lose Weight

UC San Diego is spending an awful lot of effort worrying about the "freshman fifteen". They put out a press release that's all about what college students can do to keep from packing on the pounds. Of course, it wouldn't have been written by their PR department if it didn't casually mention all of the programs specifically offered at UC San Diego to keep students healthy.

I want to know if all this is necessary if parents take steps to teach their children healthy habits at an early age. Sure, college-level programs telling people to eat less and exercise more are useful, but where have we failed as a society when they become necessary?
