Tam Fry (Chairman of the UK's National Obesity Forum): “It’s an absolute travesty"

the travesty is this : the new measures to halve childhood obesity by 2030 as announced by UK government.

They include proposals to counter ‘pester power’ by preventing stores from displaying unhealthy food at checkouts or including it in buy-one-get-one-free deals, as well as a consultation on introducing clear, consistent calorie labelling on menus in restaurants, cafés and takeaways.
The Government is calling on industry to recognise the harm that adverts for foods high in fat, sugar and salt can cause.

The guidelines are too little and too weak...

Something more drastic is urgently needed!  
and it starts with E!

Education.

If we don't start educating young people about healthy eating and diets, then these trends will continue to rise and rise...
