Healthy weight self-service portfolio of interventions - EduLincs


This self-serve service provides a range of resources schools can implement. They enable children to be at a healthy weight as at least 1 in 5 children are overweight or obese.

This resource supports schools to enhance their healthy weight activity. Interventions should be sustained, multicomponent and address the whole school. Short-term interventions are insufficient on their own and should be part of a long-term programme.

There is a wealth of good evidence that specific interventions can increase levels of healthy diet and physical activity. The challenge is that we live in an ‘obesogenic environment’, with cultural and social norms and lifestyle factors making it easy for children and families to gain weight.
