Weight Watchers has released a new weight loss app for kids, but some are calling it dangerous.
Fox 5 New York reports that Kurbo is a free nutrition app for kids as young as eight and up to 17.
The company says it’s a new tool for the millions of U.S. children struggling with their weight.
But some parents and eating disorder experts say it could lead to a rise in obsessive and unhealthy behaviors in adolescents.
There’s now a petition on Change.org to remove the app for kids. Hundreds of people have signed it.
