LGA publication: Healthy weight, healthy futures: local government action to tackle childhood obesity

This document updates the LGA's previous ‘Healthy weight, healthy futures: Local government action to tackle childhood obesity’ publication (February 2016).

It showcases the wide variety of ways, and different partners, that the sector is working with their colleagues in planning to not only restrict takeaways, but also working proactively to ensure new developments take into account health and wellbeing.

Some are focusing on getting children physically active and the latest figures suggest less than one in four children are achieving the required levels.
