In a recent statement he said that young people in the UK ate too much junk food. He added that young children especially did not eat enough fruits and vegetabes. One inventive food company has started to produced a range of vegetables with “trendy” flavuors to make them more attractive to children. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The government is now preparing to carry out a food survey of young people. It is training interviewers to visit young people at home or at school and discuss their diet with them, and also to show them how to prepare a food diary for seven days.
  14. 14. <ul><li>The idea is that the food authorities can then find out exactly what is in the diet of young people. If necessary, they can then encourage young people to include the right balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates in their diet. Perhaps we will have a healthier population in the future! </li></ul>
