Third of children leave primary school overweight

One third of children are leaving primary school overweight or obese, according to a recent Health Committee report on childhood obesity.

As a result the committee is expected to call for an advertising ban on unhealthy foods during family TV shows as well as a 20 percent sugar tax.

The House of Commons will also debate Jamie Oliver's campaign to tax sugary drinks after his online petition received more than 150,000 signatures.

The report also shows that the most deprived children are twice as likely to be obese than the least deprived.

The report highlights nine key areas for improvement, including a sugary drinks tax, strong controls on price promotions and marketing of unhealthy food and drink.
