New Weight Loss App For Kids Gets Criticized By Social Media
WW, formerly known as Weight Watchers, launched Kurbo, a free diet and nutrition app for adolescents.
According to Allure, the app claims to help 8 to 17-year-olds “build healthy habits.” Yet people are angry with the app because encouraging kids and teens to diet has proven to be dangerous.
Research in 2015 showed that a negative perception of the body can lead to eating disorders.
Jameela Jamil spoke out against the app, saying diets caused her to have an obsession and be afraid of food.
