Sad Subway Scene

There was a chubby, frum lady lady on the subway with a chubby child, maybe 15 months old, in a stroller.  The child was eating potato chips while mommy was busy with her phone.  Some time later, the child's greasy hands were grasping a small chocolate bar.


Food was used to occupy the child, keep her quiet, uncomplaining, not bothering anyone including mommy.  Sad.

Sad because the mother doesn't know how to regard food properly and sad because she is teaching her baby bad habits that will stick with the child forever, most likely.  It's sad to watch it happening.

  1. I see some massively obese teenage girls in shul. There are at least half a dozen who are dangerously obese. It starts at a young age.
