Tackling childhood obesity must still be a priority
Richmond Council will continue to tackle obesity – despite being praised for having some of the lowest percent of overweight children in the country. In a report issued this month by the NHS, it was highlighted that only 5.2% of Richmond upon Thames children aged 4-5 are considered obese, compared to 9.6% in other English boroughs.
Richmond attributes its success to the number of campaigns and programmes they have in place to encourage healthy lifestyles for all young people, such as The Daily Mile.
