Obesity 'tsar' appointed25th September 2007
A specialist official has been appointed to tackle childhood obesity in Birmingham.
Dr Patrick Lowe has been employed at a cost of £45,000 by the city council to encourage youngsters to have more exercise and eat healthy food in a city where a third of 11-year-olds are overweight. Tasked to reduce childhood obesity in more than 400 schools, Dr Lowe wants to see personal trainers working on a one-to-one basis with pupils and parents being shown how to cook vegetables properly and prepare a cheap, healthy, lunchbox.
