Delaying the Fight Against Childhood Obesity Means We Risk Sleepwalking Into a Public Health Crisis

Diane Abbott Rui Vieira/PA Archive

The health of children should be a priority for any Government as a moral duty, but also for the very practical reason that the savings made by cutting their care will be eclipsed by the multiplied costs of caring for them in adulthood. In the face of this crisis, the government as part of its wider budget reductions, has made its biggest cuts to local public health, which includes local health visitors, child obesity programmes and school nurses. This is not only wrong-headed, but a scandalous false economy.
