|Pregnant women and toddlers in Scotland are to be targeted in a £40 million drive to tackle obesity.
Over the next three years the Scottish government will use the money for promoting healthy eating and physical activity.
£19 million will be spent on improving the nutrition of young women and children under five in poor areas, while £12 million will be spent on getting people to exercise.
Pregnant women on low incomes will get vouchers to buy fruit and vegetables, while money will also be spent on improving awareness about folic acid, which reduces the risk of abnormalities in babies.
