Under-Elevens Hurtle Towards Obesity, British MPs Call for Action

it difficult for parents to find out about their children's weight.

"I am absolutely clear that the parents should get this information. It is essential that they should receive it as of right."

Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat spokesman, says: "Unless action is taken now an entire generation will suffer increased rates of serious disease like Type 2 diabetes and heart disease."

Another issue has been regarding the advertisements of junk food.

The MPs in their report call for a ban on advertisement of junk foods that target children.

In response to the report, Public Health Minister Caroline Flint has said that there is no easy answers or quick fix solutions to childhood obesity.

“The evidence on which this report is based was gathered in 2005 and early 2006. In the interim we have achieved an enormous amount”, she claims.

The government also insists progress has being made in encouraging healthy food choices and physical activity.

A spokesman for the British Heart Foundation spokesman has put the scale of the problem as "alarming", with over 1.7 million children in England alone predicted to be obese by 2010.

He opines that the government must ensure that it leads the fight, and does everything it can to strive to reach challenging targets, including enforcing bans on junk food advertising to children.
