London in ‘obesity emergency’
15th October 2014

The report outlines tough measures to tackle the “obesity emergency” that leaves one in three 10-year-olds overweight.

Other plans include schools being rated on their healthy food promotion, and given a grade similar to Ofsted and chain restaurants to use a ‘traffic light’ system to warn of the amount of calories.

It's hoped the plans will protect children from junk food and encourage healthier living.

Malcolm Clark from The Children's Food Campaign, explains how this new proposal will be carried out.
