More on the obesity crisis...


...that isn't:

“The latest figures suggest that overweight and obesity rates across the district have fallen a little since last year for Year Six pupils, and the number of healthy weight children at Year 6 age has also improved slightly.

“There has also been an improvement in the number of underweight children, with fewer in both reception and Year Six. Overall, no area is getting significantly worse..."

Which of course doesn't stop the fussbuckets saying this:

...childhood obesity remains a significant issue and we continue to take this problem extremely seriously.

Well you would, I guess, since that's what you're paid to do. Truth is that without fat taxes, snarky anti-sugar campaigns and health fascist controls on the contents of lunch boxes, we're seeing at worst a stable situation and mor elikely a decline.
