NEW JSNA Bitesize on Child Obesity
Public Health has developed a new JSNA Bitesize (one page) publication on Child Obesity showing the most recent data for Oxfordshire from the National Child Measurement Programme.
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.
