Guideline for obesity prevention during infancy

17th September 2013

These guidelines have just been published.  There is a need to broaden the evidence base around overweight/obesity identification and intervention during infancy and in particular to develop tools and guidance for UK parents and health practitioners. This project aimed to develop clinical guidance for members of the UK health visiting team to use with parents of infants at risk of childhood overweight/obesity. 


The guideline development was funded by Burdett Trust for Nursing. 


A limited number of paper copies with a laminated flow chart are available on request.
