Gosprt MP backs drive to tackle obesity
11:21am Tuesday 4th February 2014 in News
A Hampshire MP has backed a campaign to tackle obesity.
Organised by the National Obesity Forum, it calls for Government and business action but also on individuals to live a healthy lifestyle.
The National Obesity Forum estimated that as much as half of the British population could be obese by 2050, costing the taxpayer £50 billion per year.
Miss Dinenage said: “Obesity is a considerable problem in Britain and has implications not just for an individuals’ health, but the country’s infrastructure and economy.
“In Gosport, 20 per cent of Year 6 children are thought to be overweight, which is a very worrying statistic.”
