Bingo wings wobbling. Flushed jowls joggling. Mascara running faster than you are… If you shudder with recognition at these images, you’re probably a woman. A real one, who finds motivation the hardest part of keeping fit. And one who’s not alone.

New parent? Put the walkie-talkie baby monitor back in the box. What you need is Owlet, the new baby-monitoring device that sends updates to your phone throughout the night.

Going to the corner shop for sweets is a special treat for most children. But in Philadelphia, the poorest and most obese city in the US, researchers found that half the kids in low-income neighbourhoods shop at corner stores twice a day.
Oats or flakes? Raisins or goji berries? Banana chips or chocolate chunks? Yoosli is a new online cereal mixing service that lets you create your very own muesli masterpiece, with everything just the way you want it.
