Fight obesity by limiting TV

23rd September 2014

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends adults and children should consider having TV-free days.


NICE recommendations also include avoiding drinks with added sugar and limiting takeaways.

Prof Mike Kelly, director of the Centre for Public Health at NICE, said: "The general rule for maintaining a healthy weight is that energy intake through food and drink should not exceed energy output from daily activity."
