C5’s Jeremy Vine Show asked if pupils should be weighed post-lockdown – only 5 replies you need
Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine has been on Channel 5 for a while now, presenting the slot that used to be fronted by Matthew Wright.
We only mention this because the show had a question for its followers on Twitter.
Should schools weigh pupils to make sure they shift the pounds they've put on during the lockdown?

And we only mention that because it’s not often you see the internet speak as one quite so forcefully. But this was definitely one of those occasions.
Hard pass. Being weighed at school was truly the minute my eating disorder started at 12. I can trace it back to that exact day. Understand that size is not an indicator of health and just teach children about nutrition, make exercise fun and stop serving them dogshit at lunch. https://t.co/kO8OQPJMc7

Is giving children a complex about their weight which may lead to bullying from their peers, eating disorders and life long struggles with their bodies…a good idea? No. No it's bloody not. https://t.co/f4YCP9U22w
