Cooking up waste

How will free cook books for 11-year-olds help "tackle" obesity when it's probable that pupils at greatest risk of obesity are the least likely to be able to read, write or add-up!?!

"As many as 20% of children leave primary school functionally illiterate, Christine Gilbert, the chief inspector of schools, said as she unveiled reforms to the inspection process designed to intensify pressure on the lowest-performing and "coasting" schools which are failing to improve." - The Guardian, May 2008.
