KIDS as young as four-years-old are being urged to ditch their favourite junk food in a bid to reduce the risk of cancer at a later age.
Tower Hamlets has been selected by the national charity World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) to take part in its new project which will involve the borough's four to seven-year-olds learning how to lead healthier lives.
The WCRF has decided to focus primarily on Tower Hamlets after recent figures revealed that the borough is battling with some of the highest levels of child obesity in the country, with nearly a quarter of four and five-year-olds overweight or obese.
Marni Craze, Children's Education Manager for WCRF said: "By working with both parents and the public sector, we hope to help make a real difference in the borough."
