Public Health England: Day 1

It may have been a bank holiday and it may have been their very first day on the job, but that didn't stop Public Health England—the government's latest sock puppet quango—from starting its lobbying and nannying. First out of the blocks was Professor Kevin Fenton, Designate Director of Health and Wellbeing...

Prof Fenton said policy makers had to look at what he described as “the obesogenic environment – a society that is been promoting too many calories, too high portions”.

He said he wanted restaurants to make children’s portions smaller... Prof Fenton also suggested there should be a complete ban on companies advertising sweets and fatty snacks during children’s television.

Hat tip to David Moss for spotting this in the comments of the last post.
