No packed lunches or chips at school says Alex Reid

Big businesses should sponsor compulsory school meals, and packed lunches should be banned, says the former cage fighter and Celebrity Big Brother winner Alex Reid.

He is about to become a father and said the burden of healthier meals should fall on the "corporate giants" and not the taxpayers.

Mr Reid - who has deliered a similar message to MPs - will be a guest on Wednesday's Daily Politics about 1240 BST to discuss his film with MPs Margaret Curran and Mark Harper. The programme runs 1130-1300 on BBC2 and repeated at midnight on BBC Parliament.

Each week the Daily Politics offers the chance to a famous face to climb on the soapbox and speak up for a cause.
