Question for written answer E-006172-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Louis Michel (ALDE)

 Subject:  Youth obesity
 Answer in writing 

An average of 17% of adults in the Member States are obese. 52% of Europeans are overweight or obese: every other adult and close to one in three children.

Childhood obesity is a particular cause for concern, since it can lead to lifelong health conditions: diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and other chronic diseases.

There are many studies showing that regular sporting activity is crucial in combating the onset of these diseases.

1. What is the Commission doing to promote physical activity and healthier lifestyles?

2. Will the Commission put in place a strategy to increase physical activity among children in primary and secondary education?

3. Will the Commission encourage businesses to set up sporting activities/competitions among their employees?
