Tackling Obesity in Early Years
In August 2016, the Government in England published Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action. What does the plan cover and what can early years providers do to ensure that they provide a healthy diet for their children?
Currently in the UK, one in five children is already overweight or obese before they start school and only 1 in 10 children aged two to four meets the UK Chief Medical Officer’s physical activity guidelines for this age group. In order to tackle this, the Government published Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action last August, with the aim to reduce childhood obesity in England over the next 10 years.
One of the key features of the plan is to support early years settings in helping young children to become healthier, both in relation to diet and exercise. Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action.
