A NSW free from poverty and inequality

Overweight and obesity: Balancing the scales for vulnerable children

This report aims to ensure children and young people from low socioeconomic backgrounds are not left further behind when it comes to NSW approaches to reducing childhood obesity. All efforts to achieve the Premier’s Priority must have a focus on equity. We must look at why these children are more likely to be overweight, and develop solutions that address the many and complex causes of their disadvantage and limited choice.
