National Childhood Obesity Week

With an estimated three million overweight and obese children in the UK, childhood obesity is one of the most serious health epidemics facing our society today. To raise awareness about this epidemic, MEND and the National Obesity Forum have joined forces to launch National Childhood Obesity Week. Throughout National Childhood Obesity Week, MEND will launch its first-ever MEND Move It Week in a bid to encourage more children and their families to get active together. To celebrate MEND Move It Week, families across the UK will be ‘moving it’ at fun-filled physical activity events organised by MEND’s network of 350 healthy lifestyle programmes.
