The health and well-being of our children critically determines their opportunities in life. Today, nothing threatens that more than childhood obesity. 
 
Children who are obese or overweight are increasingly developing health conditions during childhood. Unfortunately they are more likely to experience bullying, low-esteem and a lower quality of life too. 
 
Currently one in three children are obese or overweight by the time they leave primary school, and with these numbers only increasing , it isn’t a question of whether we act but rather how. 
 
Here in Wakefield we have a higher than national average level of children with excess weight so we must all play a role in helping to improve the health of our children. Wakefield Council needs the help of parents and carers in order to tackle this issue – regardless if their child(ren) are a healthy weight or not.

We wish to establish what services we could offer in order to help Wakefield families make a difference to their children’s health and you could help by completing this short anonymous survey – there are 18 quick questions - it should only take a few minutes.  

 Please Note:
If you have more than one child of pre-school or primary school age please feel free to complete the survey for each child.
