This kid is fat (according to the City of New York)

Illustration for article titled This kid is fat (according to the City of New York)

Gwendolyn Williams is a pencil-thin, bubbly 9-year-old who is a perfectly healthy third-grader.

But according to city bureaucrats, she's practically obese.

"I was like, 'Oh, my God! Why did I get this?'" the Staten Island kid recalled Thursday after getting a Department of Education-issued "Fitnessgram" that described her Body Mass Index as "overweight."

"She said, 'Hey, Mom. The school told me I'm overweight.' And then she started jiggling her thighs, and saying, 'Is this what they mean?'"

'Did the Fitnessgrams get mixed up?'" said Gwendolyn, who plays softball and loves to ride her scooter.
