UK National Childhood Obseity Week 2012

National Childhood Obesity Week runs from 2-8 July 2012. 
Organised by MEND – Mind, Exercise, Nutrition… Do it! – its aim is to raise awareness of the dangers of being above a healthy weight during childhood.
This year MEND is working with netmums to publish the findings of the ‘Let’s talk about weight’ survey. This will show the experiences of parents when it comes to bringing up the topic of weight with their child and the challenges they face.
Visit the website to find out more about the many awareness-raising activities that will be taking place and how to get involved.
NHS Live members have registered a number of projects related to obesity on the NHS Live project directory. Simply click on 'advanced search' and enter the keyword ‘obesity’ or any other topic area you're interested in.
