One of the critical factors to surviving Covid, if you end up in hospital, is not being obese. To this end there is a drive to get Britain fitter and remove junk food adverts from prime time for children.

All great steps in the right direction should a second wave hit, as it is looking like now.

But can anyone understand why the golden arches are now advertising new menu items like the "double quarterpounder with cheese" ? (double the fat and calorie contents I suspect)

Surely that flies in the face of the campaign to reduce obesity!

Well
. What a question.
You might ask why eat out to help out applied to establishments serving chips...

Indeed but chips on the side are different from a whole menu that falls into the junk food category
I could also ask why mcd was also in the eat out scheme ?

Just strikes me as very Contrary !
