Labour will tackle childhood obesity
Labour's Health Minister, Rosie Winterton commented on the new statistics published by the Department of Health showing an alarming increase in childhood obesity, she claims Labour was the only party committed to tackling the problem.

Rosie Winterton said: "If anyone was in any doubt that there is a problem with childhood obesity, these figures published today should dispel it. They show the scale of the task before us.

"If this continues unchecked, we are storing up huge problems for the future. Our children will pay a heavy price through ill-health; premature death and our National Health Service will end up creaking under the strain of treating the effects of obesity.

"For years the Labour Party has been focused on tackling childhood obesity, in spite of opposition from the Tories who have blocked us every step of the way.

"Labour is on the side of the many and will take action. The Tories will do nothing. They reject any action on food labelling, restricting advertising of junk food to children. And they voted against funding for school nurses.

"Labour will support parents and children to make healthy choices. The Tory message to parents and children is – you're on your own”.
