Anti-obesity campaign criticized over images

Did the campaign go too far?

Headline Goes Here

A recent ad campaign in Georgia is creating a buzz over whether the uses of images showing overweight children are effective.

The Strong 4 life campaign is behing the ads.

Georgia currently holds the nation's second highest rate of obesity in children, according to campaign's website.

The ads use wording such as, "Fat prevention begins at home. And the buffet line." and "Big bones didn't make me this way. Big meals did."

Some experts feel the language is disparaging and may only increase the shame of being overweight while encourage bullying.

Although opponents believe the problem needs to be addressed, some believe the campaign doesn't offer any solution and only stigmatizes.

Take a look at the images and decide for yourself.How do you think a similar campaign would be received in Michigan?
