The Men Who Made Us Thin

The first of four episodes of a documentary series that I believe should be made essential viewing for every schoolchild and teacher.

You watch these programmes and you will perfectly understand my strong resistance to accepting sponsorship money from food companies for activities and events in schools (especially those associated with sports and fitness).

There is a strong need to fight back against the message sold by the food companies – if you exercise it won’t matter what your eating habits are.  Exercise is good for us and positive for our health overall,  but it’s benefits should not be overstated as a panacea or a justification for bad eating habits.
