What is it with childhood obesity?
The NHS can do some of the work but the big solution is NOTHING TO DO WITH DOCTORS AND NURSES.
The big solution is within us all individually. I have to ask the thorny question - who are the role models for our precious young people?
I am so optimistic when I see the passion of young people for healthy activity - despite the example many adults set rather than because of it.
Why do we jump to blame others before we look in the mirror?
I am appalled for instance that some of the top people in the NHS are significantly overweight. Sorry, but that is just not the right image and smacks of hypocrisy in the extreme.
Frankly I am fed up with the blame for obesity being given to burgers from MacDonald’s – sorry but that is just a cop out from our own accountability as parents and adults.
Phew I feel so much better now ….
