Childhood obesity 'getting worse every year' with nearly a quarter of Scottish five-year-olds at risk

Efforts to tackle childhood obesity in Scotland are failing, with figures showing the number of children at risk of being overweight or obese is now at a record high. The NHS statistics reveal that 22.9 per cent of primary one pupils are at risk, representing a rise of 0.8 per cent in 12 months, and almost a two per cent increase since the SNP came to power in 2007.
