Schools asked to play key role in fight against childhood obesity

Yesterday saw the government’s plan to tackle childhood obesity unveiled. The main aim for the scheme is to get children eating healthier and undertaking more exercise whilst at school. The strategy stated that primary schools in the UK will now be expected to deliver at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity to their pupils every day. Physical activity will also be a key part of the new healthy schools rating scheme. This voluntary scheme allows schools to demonstrate what they are doing to make children more physically active.
