10-11 year old children with a healthy weight
The National Child Measurement Programme data provide a proxy for population prevalence of healthy weight, overweight and obese in two school year groups and are refreshed annually.
The national Child obesity action plan was published in August 2016. It identifies 14 actions for national or local progression. It places a lot of emphasis on the role of schools to promote physical activity and healthy eating.
We aim to remain in the top quartile of all local authorities nationally to 2022.

West Sussex Public Health and County Catering won an award for their poster presented the national Public Health England Conference in Warwick early September for their work on reducing sugar in school meals. To date the equivalent weight of three London double decker buses of sugar has been removed from West Sussex primary school meals in the last 20 months. This work is continuing with Chartwells- the school meal provider.
