Theresa May has announced that her plan to scrap free school meals for primary school children is aimed at tackling childhood obesity in the UK.

The Prime Minister has claimed that scrapping free hot school meals for children in the first three years of their education will save £650 million from the national budget.

“Childhood obesity is a real problem in Britain. Take their food away and the problem is solved,” reasoned May.

“We can and must take Britain forwards together, and these fat children are only weighing us down.”
