Children should teach families about obesity

Children should help teach their parents about the risk of obesity and how to change their lifestyles, one of Britain’s most senior doctors has said.

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS England’s Medical Director, said that the government’s obesity strategy should have a greater focus on schools. He said that children have a role to play in “educating” their parents and siblings about the importance of a healthy diet.
