Britain is becoming a fast food nation and it is causing serious health
This is the opinion of Tam Fry, spokesman for the National Obesity Forum,
who believes that many people in the UK have forgotten how to correctly eat and
He was commenting on figures from the European data agency Eurostat, which
revealed that nearly a quarter of women in the UK were obese in 2009 – a
percentage that was higher than many other European nations.
Mr Fry explained that the National Health Service fails to provide many
pregnant women or those of a child rearing age with information on how to eat
"What we are lacking is the kind of one-to-one hand holding which may
be necessary, because we don't have enough midwives [and] we don't have enough
health visitors," he added.
He believes that until wide-ranging changes are
introduced into the nation's eating habits obesity rates will continue to be high in the UK.
