Since being founded in 2004, MEND has helped more than 55,000 children and adults across the world to live fitter, healthier and happier lives.

Tailored yet scalable
Our programs, training and resources are designed to be appropriate for the communities in which they are delivered.


Developed by experts
Programs and resources are developed by teams of dieticians, nutritionists, physical activity experts and behaviour change specialists using detailed research and evidence.

Delivered by local people and organisations
We train, equip and support local teams to deliver our programs and services in their communities.


Research and evidence-based
In the UK, MEND has a 20-year research partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust and University College London Institute of Child Health.

We also have research partnerships with the University of Texas School of Public Health (USA), Baylor College of Medicine (USA), University of Nebraska Medical Center (USA), Simon Fraser University (Canada) and Deakin University (Australia).

We’re proud to also work alongside the MEND International Research Group.

We currently have the largest database of child weight management data in the world.
