Public Health England (PHE) has published a suite of resources focused on promoting a healthier weight for children, young people and families – a set of training tools providing evidence-based healthy weight messages for health and social care professionals to share.
These resources are intended to support health and care professionals to be consistent and provide a core set of healthy weight messages throughout the life course. This suite of resources is part of Public Health England’s All Our Health ‘call to action’ for health and care professionals. Resources can be accessed here and include:
- Consistent messaging infographics: For use in practice. Each infographic highlights the key evidence-based healthy weight messages for specific age or target groups.
- Consistent messaging slide sets: The aim of these slides is to be used as a training tool to inform workforce development. It provides detailed evidence-based healthy weight messages from preconception through to age 18 years. It includes links to a range of useful free resources including e-learning and guidance documents.
- Child obesity animation: This animation demonstrates for all health and care professionals their vital role in supporting children, young people and families to maintain a healthier weight to prevent and reduce childhood obesity, from pregnancy through to the transition to adulthood.
