Healthy cook­ing

The Sunday Telegraph - - Letters to the editor -

SIR – It is a step too far for Food Stan­dards Scot­land to dic­tate what can and can­not be served in restau­rants and take­aways (re­port, Novem­ber 22), in the name of com­bat­ing obe­sity.

Not ev­ery­one who vis­its these places is over­weight: they may sim­ply be look­ing for some­thing dif­fer­ent or spe­cial.

It would be much more use­ful to re­in­state home eco­nom­ics in schools so that chil­dren are able to ac­quire a ba­sic knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of food, cook­ing and bud­get­ing. This would also help to break the cy­cle of par­ents who can’t or won’t teach their chil­dren good habits. Anne Cum­mings
