A growing issue

Obesity is in the headlines again, with a report from Oxford University professors predicting that within 15 years 86% of men will be overweight, and within 20 years 70% of women.

Government ministers are also, reportedly, particularly concerned about the widespread use of unhealthy 'trans-fats' - which have been linked to coronary heart disease - in fast food.

Our website has a wealth of information on healthy eating and how to maintain a healthy weight for both adults and children alike, with a special section on how to keep children healthy

Healthy eating was also among the subjects of our latest BHF podcast for our TV advert The Beat which is well worth a listen.
