The drive to tackle child obesity has stalled with a raft of measures stuck in Brexit backlog, it is being claimed.

A ban on energy drink sales to under-16s, clearer calorie labelling and a crackdown on junk food advertising were all promised by ministers when they launched the revamped obesity strategy.

But a year on none of the key measures has been introduced in England.

Both Labour and campaigners said it showed progress had stopped - but the government said it was still on track.

Among the steps being highlighted by Labour and the Obesity Health Alliance are:

The amount of sugar in baby food should be restricted and parents should give their young children more vegetables to stop them developing a sweet tooth, a report from child health experts says.

It warns that even baby food marked "no added sugar" often contains sugars from honey or fruit juice.

Parents should offer bitter flavours too, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health recommends.

This will guard against tooth decay, poor diet and obesity.

The recommendation is one of many included in a report on how to improve the health of children in the UK.

Reducing child obesity is a key priority in all parts of the UK, with England and Scotland committing to halving rates by 2030.

There are very few maternal healthcare clinics left in a country that has been torn by five years of civil war, and many of the existing facilities are poorly equipped.

Yvette Cravins knew something was wrong after her second baby was born. More than a week after leaving the hospital, she went to the emergency room and told doctors she was in terrible pain. They provided some pain treatment and told her she was just tired and should return home.

"My initial symptoms were dismissed and my health concerns were diminished," Cravins, who is now chief of staff to Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., said recently outside the Capitol.
