Detail

The Foresight project on obesity explores what the future levels of obesity might be, the consequences of obesity and how we might respond.

As obesity affects generations we need to seek input from the people who will live in that future. To do this 2 workshops were held with school children - 1 with 10 year-olds and the other with 13 year-olds - to explore what they thought the future would be like, how we could deliver healthcare in the future and their current aims and values. This report summarises the thoughts of the 2 groups.

This report was commissioned as part of the Foresight project on tackling obesities.
