Arguably even more jarring was the fact that zero performers of color were nominated in the best supporting actor and best supporting actress categories, though after past #OscarsSoWhite controversies, maybe we should collectively agree to keep our hopes ground level. How else to deal with the fact that 8 out of the 10 best supporting actress and best lead actress nominations went to blonde, Caucasian women in a year when Jennifer Lopez and Awkwafina gave career defining performances, not to mention So dam Park s breakout turn in Parasite?

That is what England s outgoing Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, thinks, too. In her October 2019 special report on childhood obesity, her final advice to government on health issues, she doubted that the 2030 target could be reached without some really serious measures being introduced. So, in Time To Solve Childhood Obesity, she lists the bold measures she thinks need to be taken the same draconian and game changing measures that Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt promised but never delivered before they lost their jobs. The pity is that Davies will no longer be in the post to oversee her solutions take shape. There is not the space in this column to go through all 49 of them, but one should be looked at in detail. There s some history to go through and it s shaming.In advocating the routine measurement of children s weight and height, Dame Sally has attempted to right the wrongs wrought on a generation of children. The wrongs began in 2002 when Whitehall failed to implement a similar proposal made by her predecessor, Sir Liam Donaldson. At a stroke, the government condemned millions of schoolchildren to grow into obesity without the professional checks on their health to which they should be entitled. It is sadly ironic that animals are measured yearly during health checks in zoos and annual MOTs ensure that our cars are in good working order, but with children the nation s future no such checks have been deemed relevant until now.
