It is shocking that 1 in 3 children are classed as obese on leaving primary school. Cutting calories in pizzas etc might help but needs to be part of a comprehensive strategy and is unlikely to be a cure in itself. Education is critical to give children and their parents the tools to achieve a healthy diet.
argets are to be set to reduce calories in pizzas, burgers and ready meals as part of the government's drive to tackle child obesity in England. Health officials believe the move is needed as people are consuming 200 to 300 calories too many each day. It could see the size of products reduced or ingredients changed in food and drinks bought in supermarkets, takeaways and restaurants.
