A mom in Australia, who wishes to remain anonymous, is nevertheless making headlines after claiming she was denied free hospital food because she isn't nursing.

B-Fing

The mother of three recently says she was shocked when she accompanied her five-month-old son to the pediatric ward, where he was treated for a lung infection.

When the staff was made aware that she wasn't breastfeeding, they informed her she could have some toast, but beyond that, she'd have to pay for any food.

That, she says, is not the case for mothers who nurse.

"Because you're not breastfeeding, you won't get meals here," the mom, who says she had to leave her son alone to go get some food, was told.

"I would also like to mention that we LOVE our disabled daughter very much," Kelli, 45, posted in the online journal she titled "The Status Woe."

There is evidence that a trend of more effective means of birth control is a factor, according to the National Center for Health Statistics at the CDC.

The decline was across all racial and ethnic groups.

Schools in 19 states are weighing students and sending reports to their parents with their body mass index (BMI) and other measurements, reports say.

Kids have started calling the reports "fat letters."

Many families and health experts have started pushing back against the reports-slash-fat letters, arguing they could damage the children’s self-esteem.

Proponents say the practice is actually an effective progress report and a tool for establishing whether a student is healthy or unhealthy physically.

A person’s BMI is calculated by dividing their weight by the square of their height, then applied to their age and gender and measured against peers.
