He's Not Lovin' It

Still on the topic of childhood obesity. There was a lot of praise for the film Supersize Me at Cannes, so looking forward to that arriving.

It follows the film-maker Morgan Spurlock as he tries to live for a month eating only food from McDonald's.

It all adds up to a fat food bill, harrowing visits to the doctor, and compelling viewing for anyone who's ever wondered if man could live on fast food alone.

The film explores the horror of school lunch programs, declining health and physical education classes, food addictions and the extreme measures people take to lose weight and regain their health.

Morgan has a blog too.

Scotland has an appalling addiction to fatty, unhealthy food. And it's not just McDonald's. Fry ups, bacon rolls, chips, irn bru…they all play their part.

As well as advertising clamp downs and free, healthy school meals I think we need to have a safer, less alienated society. Kids are kept indoors or are scared to go out, they are driven to and from school. So they get no exercise. To achieve this means reducing the gap between rich and poor for a start.
