Levels of child obesity vary between Oxfordshire’s districts.

  • In Cherwell 2017/18, obesity prevalence was significantly higher than the Oxfordshire average for Year 6 children.
  • Obesity in South Oxfordshire was significantly lower than Oxfordshire for both Reception and Year 6 children. 

Within the districts, the county’s obesity levels are highest in the south of Oxford (including Blackbird Leys, Northfield Brook and Littlemore) and Banbury in Cherwell.
