This article from BBC News highlights how diet affects your height.

Researchers took into account the height and weight of children across the world and how this is impacted by the "quality of nutrition available, and how healthy environments are for young people."

The UK was ranked at 47 (for boys - average height 178.2cm) compared to Netherlands who ranked at number one (average height of 183.8cm).

The article could be used for the Health unit, as well as for a general discussion about deprivation.
