Childhood Obesity

In 2006/07-2008/09 the trend in childhood obesity in Reception and Year 6 varied in Cambridgeshire districts but, for all, there was a significant increase in the percentage of obese children from Reception to Year 6, in common with the national trend.  Over this period, the Fenland percentage fell significantly in Reception from a high level to a similar level to the other districts.  In Year 6, the level in Fenland remains significantly higher than South Cambridgeshire, City and Huntingdonshire.
