Dept. of Education labels little Staten Island girl as 'overweight.’ Gwendolyn, age 9 (weighing in at 66 lbs) describes herself as very active and health conscious. She was given a brochure to take home with her “personal” information such as her BMI. She opened it and was very disturbed. Not only is her mother upset since her daughter is not overweight, but she thinks a way should be found for parents to receive this kind of information directly, rather than through their children who then have access to look at them and become disturbed.
