Anyone see the item in BBC news today about childhood obesity?
Some interesting - and frightening - statistics in there, 33% of 11 year olds and 22% of 4-5 year olds are overweight or obese. One of the women featured in the article reached 20 stone in her teens, she said her mum wasn't to blame and that in fact she had tried to help by enrolling her in sports clubs, getting professional help and even going to the school to tell them what she should and shouldn't be eating ... I'm at a loss to think what else the parents could do in that situation?
