Children love fat mothers

“...They like them because while any mother is a diagram of place, a picture of home, a fat one is a clearer diagram, a greater sacrament. She is more there. I can think of no better wish to all the slender swans of this present age than to propose them a toast: May your husbands find you as slim as they like; your children should always remember you were fat.”

From the mostly charming and sometimes wacky Robert Farrar Capon in his great book Bed and Board
