Childhood Obesity

Children who are above a healthy weight are more likely to have poorer health and wellbeing compared to children of a healthy weight. These children are also likely to carry excess weight in to adulthood, placing them at increased risk of developing chronic disease in later life.

Healthy Communities Mid North Coast is committed to intensifying efforts to reduce childhood overweight and obesity in our region by taking a strong whole-of-Government approach, as health is everyone’s business. To find out more please click here.
