Bemoaning the increase in teenage smoking and drinking isn't as useful as doing something about it. "Healthy Choices" in the Gogglebox series of videos offers children under 11 plenty of material from which to make their own informed decisions. It uses a skilful mixture of advice from health experts, overheard classroom discussion and lively graphics and animation.
We learn what is actually in cigarettes and alcoholic drinks, why and how they can be harmful, why many young people find them attractive and how their appeal can be resisted or kept within sensible limits. Healthy Choices costs pound;8.50 from Gogglebox, Resources for Learning, 19 Park Drive, Bradford BD9 4DS.
