Compulsory workouts

The New South Wales government will be putting preschoolers on a strict diet and exercise routine to fight obesity:
CHILDREN as young as three will undergo compulsory exercise regimes of up to two hours every day in preschools.

The New South Wales Government's anti-obesity program also phases out junkfood with kids now drinking watered down juices and low-fat milk and parents receiving a list of recommended foods for their children's lunchboxes.

Star jumps, action-singing songs as well as catching, jumping and running are just some of the exercises included in the roll call of daily activities...
I think the government should show some leadership by example by putting their own members on a similar plan. Some surely need it.
