Description

Join us to develop a Tayside approach to child healthy weight.

One in five children is overweight before they start school. We can change that.

Development of a Child Healthy Weight Strategy is part of the Tayside Children's Service Plan and halving childhood obesity by 2030 is the Scottish Government aspiration.

You are invited to come along to an all-day engagement event on Thursday 23 August at The Steeple in Dundee.

Addressing this public health priority requires true partnership working and so we want to ensure colleagues across public, private and third sectors and the community are able to come along to this event.

This event is the first step in:

  • Creating a shared understanding of the importance of child healthy weight
  • Developing a shared vision for child healthy weight which is owned across Tayside
  • Generating an approach to child healthy weight with commitment from partners

We want to include citizens and colleagues from across the three partnerships - from education (pre-school, primary & secondary); Active Schools; Tayside Contracts; Leisure & Culture Services; social care; youth workers; Dundee & Angus College and the Universities; NHS (health visitors, family nurses, GPs, midwives, infant nutrition advisers, public health, dental, looked after children); environmental health; and more!
