National Childhood Obesity Week

National Childhood Obesity Week is here! We want to raise awareness of the dangers of being above a healthy weight during childhood.


This year we worked with netmums to publish the findings of our ‘Let’s talk about weight’ survey. This showed parents' experiences of bringing up the topic of weight with their child and the challenges they face.

We planned awareness-raising activities during the Week, as well as running MEND Move It Week alongside it to encourage children and their families across the UK to get active together.

Take a look at our Supporters’ page which displays supportive quotes and pictures of all of our partners.
