All Party Parliamentary Group

I chair an All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on a Fit & Healthy Childhood which recently published a report entitled Healthy Patterns for Healthy Families: Removing the Hurdles to a Healthy Family. I believe the epidemic of childhood obesity should be treated as a national emergency. We need a minister at Cabinet level to coordinate strategy at all government levels. If you agree, write a letter to your MP to get change and make a difference.
