A third of 10 to 11-year-olds and more than a fifth of four to five-year-olds were overweight or obese, figures from National Child Measurement Programmes showed. The World Health Authority regards childhood obesity as one of the “most serious global challenges for the 21st century”.
Professor Gill Leng, Deputy Chief Executive of NICE, said that “tackling obesity in children and young people benefits their future health… up to 79% of children who are obese in their teens are likely to be obese adults, which can lead to health problems in adulthood such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.”
