One in four secondary school children say they start the day without breakfast, and over two thirds aged five to 16 are not drinking enough fluids, according to research conducted by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) among over 8,800 school children from across the UK.
The survey was conducted as part of BNF's Healthy Eating Week 2015, launched today by HRH The Princess Royal. Over 7,400 nursery, primary and secondary schools across the UK are participating, during which a 2.5 million of the UK's schoolchildren will be learning valuable lessons about healthy eating, cooking, food provenance and the benefits of physical activity.
Richard Gaisford joins us live from Bristol with families with younger children who are taking part in Healthy Eating Week.
If you have the right partner, you're financially stable and you're physically ready then do not delay.
One of Britain's top NHS fertility specialists has issued a stark warning to women: Start trying for a baby before you're 30 - or risk never having children.
In a strongly worded letter to Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, consultant gynaecologist Professor Geeta Nargund has also demanded that teenagers are taught about the dangers of delaying parenthood, because of the spiralling cost to the taxpayer of IVF for women in their late 30s and 40s.
Professor Geeta Nargund joins us to tell us more about why she thinks women should not be delaying motherhood.
What do you think? Do you think women should have children before 30 or do you think there's no danger in waiting until they're in their thirties?

I have five children, and I have to fight for justice and dignity for Christi and Bobby too
It has taken almost 10 years for holiday company Thomas Cook to apologise for their role in the deaths of two young children at one of their resorts on the Greek island of Corfu. Bobby and Christi Shepherd were poisoned by carbon monoxide fumes caused by a faulty bungalow in their villa.
Now their mum Sharon Wood gives her first TV interview to Good Morning Britain to tell the story of her battle to get the holiday giant to admit any responsibility for what happened on that terrible night in 2006. The company eventually bowed to pressure to say sorry after an inquest two weeks ago reached a conclusion of unlawful killing.
She said: “I would like to think that in light of what’s happened and on reflection, that Thomas Cook will look hard at their social responsibility to their customers and try to identify with their customers. I’d also like Thomas Cook to head pushing through a new legislation so that safety is paramount within the travel industry.”

There's a warning today that several brands of children's fruit snacks, while appearing healthy, actually contain more sugar than sweets.

Will it be Arsenal or Aston Villa who climb the 107 steps and lift the FA Cup trophy on Saturday? All fans want to get their hands on it - and we have it in the studio.
But one fan who won't be anywhere near it is Villa fan Adam Anslow, because his future missus won't let him - hardly surprising as it's his wedding day!
