Compulsory cookery classes might be more beneficial for the majority of obese people, who might only eat 'fast food' and would perhaps find it strange or a struggle to peel and boil a potato, without supervision.
I think we would all be healthier and wealthier if the government introduced rationing again along with conscription. None of us were fat during the war. Also, why do they/we use posh words like "obese" when they/we mean "Fat"?
Here is a new approach just as ridiculous. Those of us that smoke and drink cost the health service a fortune but pay in a fortune in taxes on tobacco and alcohol. So let's weigh everyone each year and if they are above the perfect weight they have to pay more national insurance. Also has the advantage of creating loads of jobs for bureaucrats.
