5 points


Read the excerpts from a BBC article about TV and children’s eating habits (http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/2/hi/health/4144676.stm Published: 2005/08/12) and answer the questions.


Children's TV heroes are having a negative impact on their eating habits, a survey finds.


Nearly two-thirds of 2,000 parents quizzed said cartoon character Homer Simpson - famous for loving doughnuts - promoted an unhealthy lifestyle. [...]

"TV can obviously have a huge impact on children's lives. If it is having an influence as the survey suggests - and parents will know best - it is worrying."

A separate survey of more than 1,000 schoolchildren also found that two thirds were failing to eat five portions of fresh fruit or vegetables a day as the government recommends.

The unhealthiest age group was 12-year-olds with only a fifth eating the correct amount, with a further fifth only eating one portion a day.

The survey also revealed primary schools were better at promoting healthy eating than secondary schools.

And children also showed a "worrying" lack of knowledge about where food comes from.

One in five thought beef came from pigs, one in eight said cheese came from butter and one in six claimed broccoli was a baby tree.
