Description:
“Children have the right to life, survival and development” (1). Essential to this right is the opportunity to live a healthy lifestyle and to develop healthily. A combination of a nutritious diet, physical activity and the maintenance of a healthy body weight1 will support children in achieving their personal potential and living long, fulfilled and good quality lives. Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of excess body weight, poor diet and physical inactivity. This is because as they are growing and developing they are reliant on the support of others, i.e. parents/guardians for their basic needs. They are also likely to carry the habits they form in their childhood into adulthood.
