Response: Childhood Obesity a Concern Even in Lincoln, England

(Response to Motivating Parents to Combat Childhood Obesity)

To the editor:

Here in England there is constant debate about overweight children. Trouble is, mothers will drive their children instead of walking them. When I was 4 1/2 (in 1940), I used to walk well over a mile to school, and from the age of 6 I went on my own. It wasn't till I was 11 that I cycled to senior school every day.

David Vinter

I live 30 miles from our Lincoln.
