Are parents to blame for their children being fat?

Yes - I believe parents are the root cause to their children being obese. Kids need to be educated about the short and long-term implications of eating unhealthy. Schools also need to encourage more physical activity and report obesity in kids.

I agree with the sentiment that parents are responsible for their childrens weight. A child doesn't really understand the implications of a poor diet, so it's the parents responsibility to educate them. Once they're educated though, they're on their own.
