Body image lessons for children

30th May 2012

The All Party Parliamentary Group on body image has recommended that all schoolchildren should take part in compulsory body image and self-esteem lessons.

The recommendation comes after it emerged that more than half of people have a negative body image with girls as young as five worrying about their looks. Rates of cosmetic surgery have also soared with figures showing an increase of nearly 20% since 2008. Another recommendation is a review into whether the Equality Act 2010 should be amended to include appearance-related discrimination.
