About our strategy

Haringey has high overweight and obesity rates:

  • 48.7% of adults are overweight or obese
  • 23% of reception children and 38% of Year 6 children are overweight or obese (according to the National Child Measurement Programme classification)

We've worked with partners to create our Healthy Weight Strategy to promote healthy weight and tackle obesity using an evidence-based approach.

Our approach

We know that tackling obesity is complex and evidence suggests that any single intervention is unlikely to be effective on its own. The Tackling Obesities report identifies over a hundred factors which contribute to obesity. Our approach aims to understand how these factors influence each other and how we can promote behaviour change at a community level.
