I've seen plenty of average/skinny parents with obese kids. Sometimes I only see one parent though, so who know what the other one looks like.
Rarely EVER see fat parents with slim kids. Most the kids I've seen have fat parents.
The ones with fat parents are the hardest ones to do anything about. The parents are in such bad denial about their eating habits that it's impossible to get true lifestyle changes. They always say shit like, "Yeah, I don't know why but Johnny will just go in the fridge and drink a bunch of soda and go in the cabinets and eat all the sweets in there!"
