The whole society approach: making a giant leap on childhood health

This report looks at the government's 'obesity strategy' announcement in July 2020 and considers how it could be used to address growing levels of 'health risk' faced by children.

The report outlines a ‘whole society’ approach to expand ambition from obesity to all health issues; tackle the link between childhood health and issues such as marginalisation, poverty and deprivation; and ensure the full range of levers offered by a collective approach are being used.
