Parents' poor eating habits

18th March 2005 at 00:00
According to Joanna Blythman (Another Voice, TES, March 4), now it is the supermarket which is to blame for children's poor eating habits. I have yet to see a supermarket heat up processed meals for children in their homes.

Parents do this.

Why are the media so unwilling to put the responsibility where it should lie - on parents' shoulders?
