Dr Chris Tulleken: Unwrapping the Impact of Ultra-Processed Foods on Children's Health

Wendy and Alison are joined by Dr. Chris Van Tulleken, infectious diseases doctor and familiar face from CBBC's Operation Ouch. Chris discusses his latest book, "Ultra Processed People," which dives into the world of ultra-processed foods and their profound impact on our health, especially that of our children. Chris unpacks the definition of ultra-processed foods, their addictive qualities, and the perils of a diet dominated by these products. He addresses the elephant in the room: the role of big food companies in perpetuating the consumption of these foods and the urgent need for government regulation. This conversation doesn't shy away from the tough questions. From the link between ultra-processed foods and ADHD to the childhood obesity crisis, Chris provides a nuanced perspective on health beyond the scales. He calls for action, not just from the top down but also from each one of us, as parents navigating the daily challenges of feeding our families.
