Jamie Oliver and Steven Gerrard call on PM to fight obesity


Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and England footballer Steven Gerrard are calling on the government to fight obesity through cookery teaching in schools.

They have joined figures in health and education as signatories to a letter to the prime minister suggesting changes be made to the national curriculum.

The letter says all pupils aged four to 14 would benefit from food education.
