Change attitude to weight is­sue

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - TV CHOICE -

I READ with in­ter­est the story about Aberdeen sci­en­tists’ bid to help fight child­hood obe­sity (EE, Au­gust 17).

It is such an im­por­tant is­sue, es­pe­cially here in Scot­land, where we are con­stantly told how un­healthy we are.

I have strug­gled with my weight all my life, and now suf­fer from Type 2 di­a­betes.

Any break­through by the ex­perts would be won­der­ful. If kids can start life with a healthy attitude to eat­ing, then they might avoid the health is­sues some of us adults are fac­ing now.
