Children to Be Taught Ways of Growing and Cooking Food

Under a new proposed national curriculum, it has been subjected that children will be taught ways to grow and cook food. As a part of the curriculum, a city MP has taken up the initiative to teach children.

It has been reported that Stoke-on-Trent North MP Joan Walley has termed that national food system is failing, after encountering a major setback of an increase number of cases, which depict large number of children affected by obesity.

Nevertheless, it has been proposed that a call for ban on junk food advertisements, which specifically target the younger generation, has been made.

Ms Walley said, "Food system is failing. Obesity and diet-related illness is on the increase, fewer young people are being taught how to cook or grow food, and advertisers are targeting kids with junk food adverts on the internet".

At the same time, she emphasized that demands for food security are at a rise, with population on a rise and even climatic conditions have become unpredictable, as a consequence of forest destruction and over-use of fossil fuel.

However, government seems to be unconvinced with the thought of organizing such events, yet the team organizing such events is clear to make a move forward to help tackle obesity problem.
