Unfortunately, many severely disabled children are unable to eat on
their own and get their nutrition from a feeding tube. Those children
rarely get too many calories. Other disabled children have problems with
getting enough calories.

The degree and type of problems these children have will help determine
whether these kids are able to become overweight or obese.

I have been to several different places with disabled kids, including
regular schools and schools for disabled kids, hospital wards with
disabled kids, Special Olympics. I have seen many overweight and obese
kids in these settings.

In addition, there are some genetic conditions, like Prader-Willi
syndrome which cause disabilities and obesity. In addition, kids with
Down Syndrome and hypothyroidism can have disabilities and obesity.

Lack of excercise is one reason why kids are too fat. Too many calories,
particularly empty calories, like soda, juice and Doritos are another
reason.

Every kid is different. There are different factors in different kids.

I can taste sugar, I can taste saccharine, I can't taste aspartame
(except for the sweetness).

I haven't drunk a sugar-sweetened soft drink (HFCS isn't used in
Australia) since the day of the diabetes diagnosis. One thing I have
noticed, however, is that I used to be able to drink much more sugary
water at one sitting that I can of the "diet" drinks. Every now and
then I'm forced to buy a 600ml bottle instead of 350ml bottle or can
(to get the non-sugar variety) and I almost always have to throw some
away. It tastes good, but I need less of it.
