About This Episode
Childhood obesity has been in the news for what feels like decades – but what’s at the heart of it and what as parents can we do to combat it?
Planet Parent talks to Professor Greg Whyte OBE, a former Olympian who as well as training the likes of David Williams, Davina McCall and Zoe Ball to complete gruelling Sport Relief challenges, has also become one of the world’s leading authorities on exercise and nutrition.
