Obese children have been taken away by social workers after being overfed by their families, it has been revealed.
The super-size youngsters were placed in care across the UK amid fears their weight was wrecking their health.
One child had a Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement of 35 – the equivalent of a six-foot man weighing 19st.
It comes as an increasing number of parents give in to their children’s cravings for unhealthy food – a phenomenon known as ‘killing with kindness’.
In the past year alone, five British children have been taken from their families because of overfeeding, according to a survey by the Sunday Express.
