The concern of childhood obesity should be given much more attention it is not only about the physical health, the mental wellbeing of an unhealthy eater can cause disease to the brain also.
These foods are not helping young people to be healthier and their high fat and salt content, unknowingly to a young person is a contributing factor to their behaviour.
Currently in many disadvantaged areas of London you will find many fast food outlets closely located next to schools.
There is a saying that "you are what you eat", well this saying is starting to show on the waist lines of young people and their mental health.
Fast food outlets are a heavy contributor on influencing the health of young people. This may also affect how young people advance as adults. Our food is essentially contributing heavily to the obesity and poor health of many Londoners.
Sugary and salty, fatty foods contribute to poor physical and mental health.
We will never tackle the problem effectively if the whole community does not play it's part, we want fast food outlets become more aware and try to improve the foods they provide and the way it is prepared. This duty of care is especially for young people.
The power is in our hands, if we collect the number of signatures needed, this will allow Steve Brine Public Health MP to a launch response to our concerns.
