Healthy weight messages communicated to children, young people and families need to be consistent and evidence-based.
These resources give health and social care professionals a core set of healthy weight messages from before birth to adulthood.
They consist of:
- a set of infographics for use in practice
- a set of training tools for consistent messaging:
We have also produced a child obesity video on how to promote a healthier weight.
The target audience for these resources is health and care professionals but they will be accessible to the wider public health workforce.
This suite of resources is part of Public Health England’s All Our Health ‘call to action’ for health and care professionals.
This guidance has been prepared by: Charlene Mulhern; Evie Casey; Loretta Sollars; Diet, Obesity and Physical Activity Division; Dental Public Health Team and Chief Nurse, Maternity and Early Years Directorate.
