Get your MP's support to tackle children’s obesity

1 in 3 children in the UK leave school obese. Why is this a problem?

Obese children are 5 times more likely to be obese adults. Excess weight as an adult increases risk of up to 13 cancers. This makes obesity the second biggest preventable cause of cancer in the UK.

3 in 4 people are unaware of the link between obesity and cancer. Before MPs can take action, we need them to understand why children are at risk of ill-health in the future.
