Childhood Obesity in England & Wales - Are 22,000 children really obese?

 

A recent study by Public Health England and Wales has revealed that almost 60% more children in their last year of primary school are classified as "severely obese" than in their first year.

Marcus Holmes, Director of Inspired Playgrounds said: "The evidence is mounting, there has now been lots of research into the health of children in our country and the general consensus is that obesity is on the rise which shows how important it is for children to be getting more exercise.

Children learn how to read and write, so it is important that they learn to enjoy taking exercise as well. Inspired Playgrounds was developed to help children enjoy exercising at school.
