Hampshire Healthy Weights Strategy

Healthy Weights: strategy for children

The Hampshire Healthy Weights strategy has been developed as a partnership between the County Council and NHS Hampshire Primary Care Trust.

By working with children, their families and their communities our main focus is to reduce the prevalence of excess weight amongst Hampshire children.

The Healthy Weights strategy:

  • identifies local targets and priorities for action
  • identifies the roles of different partners and which actions they will lead on
  • defines who is accountable for what
  • explains how we intend to monitor the implementation of our strategy and report on the progress made against our targets and plans
