If a child is adequately being taken care of, then size shouldn't matter, and if that is a consideration, that is discrimination.

Only in the cases of morbid obesity, where the children are forced to be the parent's caregivers.

I think it has to in extreme cases such as when an individual is confined to bed due to obesity.
