A recent survey of 750 Australian schools has revealed that on average children have grown too large for their chairs and desks. From the article: “The Education Department said schools were running healthy eating programs. ‘The department takes the issue of childhood obesity seriously and works with a number of agencies to address the issue,’ a spokesman said. ‘We have a number of initiatives to support school communities as well as promote healthy eating.’ He said parents needed to enforce the message about healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle at home.”
