In pictures: Kids speak out about body image

Riaz, 13

You told us you worry about how you look, so we asked pupils in Birmingham how they feel about their appearance. Riaz says looks don't matter as it's the person inside that counts.

Nicole, 13

Nicole agrees and thinks personality is much more important. "You shouldn't judge someone on how they look," she said.

Bethany, 13

Bethany said she liked to wear a bit of make-up sometimes, but only on her eyes.

Saifa

Saifa said most girls, and some of the boys, in her school worried about their appearance, but she thought inner beauty was more important.
