Junk Food Kids: Who’s to Blame?

Show Details

A third of our children are now overweight or obese. And last year 26,000 children had to go to hospital to have rotten teeth removed under general anaesthetic, largely as a result of poor diet and lack of tooth brushing. We’re bringing up a generation of junk food kids, who are suffering from completely avoidable illnesses. But why are we in the grip of this epidemic, and what can we do about it? With access to some of the busiest children’s hospitals in the country, this eye-opening observational documentary series goes behind the headlines, as doctors and surgeons speak out about why our children are so unhealthy. We’ll meet the parents who are struggling to do the right thing for their children, and follow them as they try to improve their child’s health.
