Healthy weight, healthy lives strategy consultation

We are developing a healthy weight, healthy lives strategy to address the rise in childhood and adult obesity in North Yorkshire and would like your views.

The most recent North Yorkshire joint strategic needs assessment has highlighted the worrying rise in childhood and adult obesity as an increasing problem across the county, particularly among the adult population, with North Yorkshire now being ranked 24 out of 27 shire counties for this indicator.

To address this problem, the North Yorkshire health and wellbeing board has agreed that a healthy weight, healthy lives strategy should be developed. Following a period of engagement with key stakeholders, North Yorkshire County Council's public health team has written a draft pdf icon Healthy weight, healthy lives: tackling overweight and obesity in North Yorkshire' strategy (2016-26) [1Mb]​.

The draft strategy presents the complexities and impact on excess weight; the opportunities for change; the patterns and trends of obesity nationally and locally; and the proposed vision, aims and priorities for tackling excess weight in North Yorkshire.
