Obese children need to get back to shape as soon as possible. In the scenario, temporary foster care for obese kids may be a better option than weight loss surgery especially in certain severe cases.

This is advocated not as a way to punish children or parents but to help both in achieving a common goal.   

It is wrong to assume such a move as 'child neglect', on the contrary it is special care so that the child loses weight and also regains his lost self-esteem.
