Research shows that children living close to fast food outlets are more likely to be overweight. Researchers looked at weight data from more than a million children and compared it with the availability of unhealthy food from outlets including fish and chip shops, burger bars, pizza places, and sweet shops. It is hoped that the findings will help shape planning policy to help tackle childhood obesity.
