prSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Legislators in Puerto Rico are debating a bill that would fine parents of obese children up to $800 if they don’t lose weight.

If approved, public school teachers would flag potential obesity cases and refer them to a counselor or social worker, depending on the severity of the case.

Health Department officials would then meet with the parents and determine whether the obesity is a result of bad eating habits or a medical condition.

They also would create a diet-and-exercise program combined with monthly visits to ensure it’s being followed.  More
