In the past year, children’s diets and eating habits have rarely been out of the headlines. Some children are not being given breakfast at home and show a lack of concentration at school. At the same time, childhood obesity is on the increase.

  • Is obesity a result of our modern environment: “a normal reaction to an abnormal environment”?
  • Has society normalised its perception of what it means to be overweight?
  • Do we have the right balance between local and centralised government action with regards to obesity?
