The kindergarten, located in Jiading district of Shanghai, has more than 130 students. A menu of afternoon snacks between Nov 14 and 18 made by the kindergarten shows boiled Chinese cabbage, boiled Bok choy, boiled baby cabbage, boiled lettuce and steamed pumpkin for overweight children, and eggs, milk, meat balls and biscuits for underweight children.
The kindergarten also prepares special meals for sick children, which are free from allergenic foods like eggs, mushrooms and seafood.
Some parents agree with this implementation, A mother, surnamed Li, whose child is a student of the kindergarten said, "Extra meals are different from formal meals. It is good for my overweight child to eat more vegetables."
Some parents express their concerns. A parent said his son is in the critical stage of physical development, "If he is overweight, he can exercise more. But malnutrition will affect his development."
Some other parents fear that differential treatment may cause psychological problems. A mother surnamed Zhang, said that kindergarten children are very sensitive and afraid of being treated differently. Overweight or underweight children see negative reactions in everyday life and different meals may repeatedly remind them of their differences.
Is it suitable to provide tailored snacks for overweight children?
