    Abstract

    The aim of this dissertation is to identify what schools are doing to tackle the issue of obesity. It will be analysing whether children today are being educated of the importance and benefits of living a healthy lifestyle through their diet and regular exercise. The report will assess the causes and effects of obesity and examines to what extent the government have recognised and helped solve the problem of obesity. It will also assess the opinion of the British Medical Association. Primary research has been conducted to assess and analyse how much schools are providing for children in the way of education. The research is successful in acquiring the opinions of Head teachers on a variety of subjects involving obesity. Conclusions are drawn using primary and secondary research, it found that schools are implementing government regulations on food, but they need to focus on encouraging children to participate in more sport by giving them a wider choice of variety.
