United Kingdom's government is thinking about banning all food and drink on public transport. UK's plan to ban people eating and drinking on trains and buses is not popular with people. They say government should not control whether or not people can eat and drink on public transport. Many people said plan was another example of UK becoming "nanny state". This is country that wants to control everything people can and cannot do. UK's Chief Medical Officer, professor Sally Davies, said the plan was necessary to help reduce obesity. She said it was part of plan to halve obesity in children by 2030 and to help people make healthier lifestyle choices.

Professor Davies reported that there are twice as many overweight schoolchildren today as there were 30 years ago. She said: "Today's children are drowning in flood of unhealthy food and drink options." She said this is made worse because of "insufficient opportunities for being active". She said children do not get enough exercise. She added: "We must go further and faster." Ms Davies also wants to stop fast food being sold at soccer games. Many travelers are angry about plans. nurse, Nicky Paxton, said transport ban would make her life worse. She said: "I often work 12 hours without break and I need sandwich on train on my way home from work."
