7 Preventing childhood obesity in Derby
1 in 5 children in Derby carrying excess weight by age 4-5 By age the figure has risen to over a third Greater risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, certain cancers, low self-esteem and can reduce life expectancy by up to 9 years Strong association between childhood obesity and deprivation, and the gap between disadvantaged and affluent areas widens as the child grows older Obesity is a complex issue determined by how we live our daily lives, the environment in which we live and work, and how we feel about ourselves

8 Derby’s Childhood Obesity Strategy
Tackle the 'obesongenic environment', including availability of 'junk food' & the drivers of sedentary lifestyles  Tap into the wider workforce to positively impact public health in their community, by supporting them to have a conversation about adopting healthier eating and physical activity  Go beyond health education and behaviour change approaches to incorporate environmental changes to shift norms and enable the adoption of healthy behaviours within everyday life  Giving every child the best start in life is crucial from infant feeding and early years settings, through schools and the importance of working with families, to promoting healthy transitions into adulthood

9 Preventing obesity: Early years and School settings
Take a whole school approach. Interventions should be sustained, multicomponent and address the whole school, including after-school clubs and other activities minimise sedentary activities during play time, and provide regular opportunities for enjoyable active play and structured physical activity sessions Promote and enable walking and cycling to school ensure children eat regular, healthy meals in a pleasant, sociable environment free from other distractions. Children should be supervised at mealtimes and, if possible, staff should eat with children Encourage high uptake of school meals, and promote healthy lunchboxes; introduce ‘stay onsite’ policy School breakfast clubs offer a chance for pupils to have a healthy breakfast in a social environment, setting them up for the school day ahead Involve parents and incorporate children’s views
