England's chief medical officer says we should, calling the state of our kids' health "very worrying" - and saying that they deserve better.

England's Health Watchdog says parents of overweight children should monitor how much time they spend watching TV and playing computer games. Today, a documentary's being released to try to get them off the sofa and playing outside. 'Project Wild Thing' says young people - in cities and the countryside - have lost touch with nature. It blames the parents, the media whipping up fear of crime - and the amount of traffic on our roads.

So, should we be ashamed of our children's health?
