The above Malaysia cartoon is taking a jab at the recent issue raised by Malaysia Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, to help parents monitor their school-going children’s health.
According to Liow Tiong Lai, Malaysia is currently ranked sixth amongst Asian countries and first in South-East Asia for a high percentage of obese citizens.
He wanted the Malaysian student’s Body Mass Index (BMI) to be listed on their report cards, so that parents would be able to know whether their child’s weight is ideal, overweight or obese.
As reported in the Malaysia latest news, new guidelines on food sold in school canteens, which includes frequency of certain food served, will be issued soon. Hope you like this kartun Malaysia.
