The Child Healthy Weight Group is a small number of people from the NHS, local councils and the wider community. It is our job to understand more about child healthy weight in Tayside because too many children have a weight above the healthy weight range.
‘The Tayside Plan for Children, Young People and Families’, aims to improve the health and wellbeing of all children in Tayside . Helping more children to have a healthy weight is an important part of this plan.
We know discussing weight can feel uncomfortable but it is important because weight is a marker of health and wellbeing. We want it to be easier for people to talk about weight in a positive and sensitive way.
We want to find out what matters most to you so that we can all do the right things to help families be as healthy and happy as possible.
Please read our ‘Making a Child Healthy Weight Plan for Tayside’ leaflet for more information.
Between now and 30 September 2019 we will be asking for views from people across Tayside.
Please take a few minutes to complete our questionnaire – it can be completed online https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NZBQ9JG
