The UK wants to food and drink on public transport. This is not popular with people. They say governments should not say who can eat and drink on trains and buses. The UK said the plan was necessary. It wants to halve obesity in children by 2030. It also wants to help people live healthier lives.

There are two times more overweight schoolchildren today than in 1990. Children today have too much unhealthy food and drink. They also do not exercise enough. Many travelers are angry about the plan. A busy nurse said it would be bad for her. She said: "I need a sandwich on the train on my way home from work."
