It has been reported that Britain will soon be organizing cookery classes in school for all children, aged between four and 14. It has been illustrated that Britain has turned out to have highest rate of childhood obesity amongst all countries in Europe.
It has been figured that one-third of the children in the age group of nine are either obese or overweight in UK.
Hence, several charity leaders, health experts and child experts have collaborated and asked the government to allow them to organize the cookery classes across all the schools in UK. It has been revealed that they have written to Prime Minister David Cameron regarding the issue of increasing cases of obesity amongst children.
They have asserted that the cookery classes will help provide knowledge to the children regarding healthy cooking and thus will affect their dietary habits to a great extent and will also encourage their families to consume healthy food.
Moreover, it has been affirmed that if such a step is not taken to tackle the situation, then the consequences can be devastating and a huge amount of funding would have to be made in the coming future to tackle obesity related problems, including heart disease, diabetes etc.
