We all want our young people to have the best possible start in life; however, a worrying number of children in North East Lincolnshire are developing unhealthy weight patterns at an early age. Some children are overweight and obese, while others are underweight.
Promoting a Healthy Weight allows great potential for, and will require, effective partnership working. To be successful, links will be made with a wide range of partners and strategies, locally, regionally and nationally. Everyone can make a difference and has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity.
This page provides you ‘the professional’ with all the information, support and resources that you will need to support promoting healthy weight to children, young people and their families. It has been broken down into 3 Healthy Weight Competencies so you can identify your role and only read the information which is relevant to you. For more information a tool - Healthy Weight Guidance - has been created, which can be downloaded from the section to the right of the page. The guidance is based on national strategies and gives information, resources, and programmes to help promote healthy weight.
