Detail : Negative body image is now the biggest single worry for millions of children and young people, with children as young as five now worrying about how they look. Research shows that one in five primary school aged girls say they have been on a diet, while 87% of girls aged 11-21 think that women are judged more on their appearance than on their ability.
