Obesity: Children:Written question - HL17106

Asked on: 11 July 2019
Department of Health and Social Care
Obesity: Children
To ask Her Majesty's Government what action, if any, they are taking to reduce rates of obesity amongst 12–16 year olds with special needs.
Answered on: 25 July 2019

There has been no central assessment of the prevalence of obesity amongst children with special needs.

We published the second chapter of our world-leading childhood obesity plan in June 2018. This builds on the real progress we have made since the publication of chapter one in 2016, particularly in reformulation of the products our children eat and drink most. Measures in both chapters of our plan will help reduce obesity in people of all ages and abilities including those with special needs.
