The article presents the author's views on obesity in British children. It refers to the U.S. study by K. Todd published in this issue, comments about its support of family lifestyle changes, and suggests areas of further study. The author wonders if the boys in the study continued to use less electronic media and how they felt about their lifestyle changes.
