Für den Fall, dass sie es nicht gemerkt haben, sollen britische Eltern in Zukunft von der Schule ihres Kindes einen offiziellen Brief bekommen, in dem ihnen erklärt wir, dass ihr Sprössling zuviel wiegt.
Parents are to receive official letters telling them if their child has a weight problem under a Government crackdown on obesity, it has been announced. […]
From September this year it is expected that all parents who allow their child to be weighed and measured as part of the Government’s drive to solve the childhood obesity crisis will automatically receive the results through the post.
The measurements will be used to calculate the child’s Body Mass Index adjusted for their age but parents will not be told this figure.
Instead the pro-forma letter will plot where the child is on a scale from underweight, to healthy weight, overweight and very overweight.
