One in 10 children are obese by the age of five, rising to one in five by age Our children could be a smoke-free generation, but we've hit a devastating record high for childhood obesity, and now we need urgent Government intervention to end the epidemic. They still have a chance to save lives.
The charity is calling on the Government to act on its ambition to halve childhood obesity rates by and introduce a 9pm watershed for junk food adverts on TV and online. Other measures should include restricting promotional offers on unhealthy food and drinks, it said.
Earlier this week, Cancer Research UK was criticised for its campaign drawing a parallel between smoking and obesity. The charity's latest billboard features a cigarette packet bearing the slogan "obesity is a cause of cancer too".
Last February, comedian and body positive campaigner Sofie Hagen criticised an advert from the charity which highlighted obesity as the leading preventable cause of cancer after smoking, calling it "incredibly damaging". This study is further proof that obesity is the new smoking, and the NHS can't win the 'battle against the bulge' on its own; families, food businesses and government all need to play their part if we're to avoid copying America's damaging and costly example.
