Health insurance news: Schools 'are tremendous at educating pupils about good food'
Schools are doing "tremendous work" in terms of educating pupils about the right and wrong foods to eat, which may be of interest to those with health insurance policies.
This is according to Tam Fry, chair for the Child Growth Foundation charity, who noted school is where healthy eating should really be learnt.
He added: "Back in the 90s and the late 80s all domestic science was done away with in the school curriculum. Now what is happening is that schools are starting to realise what a mistake that was."
Mr Fry, who is also a board member on the National Obesity Forum - which aims to raise awareness about the increasing health impact being overweight can have - predicted food education will "get much better".
This comes after Abigail Tyler, nutrition consultant and founder of the Vitality Clinic Nutrition Consultancy, stated issues such as obesity and heart disease can be helped by eating five types of fruit and vegetables a day.
