    Could enforcing a 'no seconds' policy at dinner time help combat childhood obesity?

    Obesity expert, Dr Clare Llewellyn has revealed that though children who are overweight eat just 12 extra calories at mealtimes, that tiny amount adds up to an extra 5,500 calories every month, which leads to youngsters putting on weight up to 7% quicker than other children of the same age. Dr Llewellyn, a lecturer in behavioural obesity research at University College London, said that overweight children do not necessarily eat more often, or have more junk food, but likely pile on the pounds because the portions on their plates are too large.
