Great Weight Debate – join the conversation

London has more overweight and obese children than New York, Sydney, Paris or Madrid. More than a third are overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school. Join the London conversation on childhood obesity by completing this short survey here.

All London councils have new plans to tackle childhood obesity and are putting these into action. But we need to work smarter, faster and harder.

Our environment makes it harder for families to make healthy choices. We want all Londoners to join the Great Weight Debate and tell what changes they think will help children and families lead healthier lives.

We would like as many residents to complete the survey as possible. Being mindful that not everybody has access to a computer or speaks English as a first language, Michele, Public Health Dietitian is organising a number of outreach sessions to help people fill in a hard copy.
