Linda Hindle on tackling childhood obesity, at Birmingham Sustainability Forum

Linda Hindle‘s presentation at the Birmingham Sustainability Forum was about tackling childhood obesity – incredibly, one in four children in Birmingham are obese by the time they leave primary school.

The aims Linda discussed in her presentation include:

  • making sure Birmingham’s environment encourages participation in physical activity and enjoyment of healthy food
  • changing behaviour so that children make the choice to be more active and eat healthy foods
  • Birmingham families should have access to local opportunities for physical activity and healthy food
