I think super obese kids should definitely draw attention from the child protection agencies, but I don't know if simply being super obese as a child necessarily means that the parents are being abusive. Sometimes very loving parents who just don't know about proper nutrition or the health risks can raise a super obese child (and are likely obese themselves), and in that case instead of taking the child away maybe some kind of nutritional education could be provided. In situations like Jolina described though, it sounds like the obesity was the result of abuse, and in that case I would probably agree that the kids should be taken away.
