Pregnant women to get 120 for fruit and veg 
  Expectant mothers will be given 120 handouts in the 
  hope they spend it on fruit and vegetables to nourish 
  their unborn children.  The money, which would be 
  given to women in their seventh month of pregnancy, 
  would be linked to advice on how to maintain a balanced 
  diet and give up drinking and smoking.

Toddlers ill from too much salt
  Children as young as four are eating so much salt it 
  is putting their health at risk by raising their blood 
  pressure, a study suggests.  The average four-year-old 
  ate 4.7g a day, which is way above the 2-3g recommended 
  for this age group. The message for parents is to check 
  labels, especially on foods such as breakfast cereals 
  and snack products.

No outdoor play hurts children
  Children's health is suffering because they are losing 
  the chance to play outside, a group of experts has 
  warned.  Over-anxious parents, computer games and 
  school tests are to blame, a letter signed by almost 
  300 academics, authors and charity leaders says.
