With more and more children becoming obese across Lincolnshire, special classes are now being held to try and tackle the problem.
East Lindsey District Council is working with the NHS in schools, to teach parents and their children how they can improve their lifestyles. Obesity is rising by one percent year on year across the county, with the East Coast particularly badly affected. Kate Hemingway reports:
With the alarming rise in childhood obesity, not just in Lincolnshire, but also across the UK, it is more important than ever that we help families to better understand real basics when it comes to exercise and nutrition, and also the reasons why everyone needs to stay active and eat fruit and vegetables.
