Australian Government Announces Survey To Tackle Childhood Obesity

Around 4,000 Australian children are to be weighed, measured and interviewed regarding their diet in a national survey designed to tackle //the growing menace of childhood obesity. The Australian Health department said that about 25 percent of the children aged between 7 and 15, are either overweight or obese.

This problem is increasing the incidence of heart disease and diabetes. Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott said that 4,000 children would take part in the national nutrition survey. "Helping consumers make informed choices about their lifestyle, particularly about the food they eat, is an important role for industry as well as government," he added.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics had revealed in February that 62 percent of men and 45 percent of women were either overweight or obese.

Mr Abbot said the results of this survey would be announced next year.
