Fat kids, four-wheel drives and private schooling

No wonder kids are getting fatter. The private primary school I walk past on my way to work every morning is awash with dads and mums in their ridiculously over-powered 4 wheel drives dropping their children off. Of the ten cars parked outside the school today, 7 were SUVs.

What’s even more tragic is that most of these parents would be driving each day past at least two or three, if not more, perfectly adequate state schools in a misguided belief that an expensive education is a better one.  To  find out more about the link between obesity and the motor car, The Energy Glut is a good – if somewhat utopian – read!
