Tackling Obesity

Description

With childhood obesity hitting alarmingly high levels, take a look at what schools could and should be doing to tackle the problem, in this whole-school video on healthy living in primary and secondary schools.

Addressing whether schools should help to identify children at risk of obesity, see the results of a new law in Arkansas, which allows the state's schools to directly contact the parents of overweight children.

St Luke's Science and Sports College in Exeter uses online technology to study the link between weight, lifestyle and attainment, while Pinhoe Primary School, also in Exeter, demonstrates the use of its Take 10 activity resource, which is available to all primary schools.

At Waldringfield Primary School in Woodbridge, Suffolk, children can learn about food by growing their own vegetables and having them served up for their school dinner.
