Childhood obesity is still falling

The BBC is reporting that 1 in 5 kids are leaving primary school obese (see above). This seems to be an evergreen statistic for their health 'news' (see below, from 2010).

I have no problem with the BBC reporting routine statistics every year but they also claim that child obesity rates are 'on the rise'. This is untrue, as I explain in my Spectator post today.

Do have a read of it.
