Abstract

The study by Robinson and Sutin suggests that “Contrary to popular belief, parental identification of child overweight is not protective against further weight gain”(1) We were approached by the press to address the potential contradictions between Robinson’s study and previous reports, including ours(2), and possible confusion to the public. We failed to see any conflicts between the Robinson’s study and ours. Instead, we found consistency between this new study and ours.
