Bolton’s Healthy Weight Strategy: 2012-2017. Setting out the vision. To achieve a healthy weight for all in Bolton

Abstract

Bolton's Healthy Weight Strategy 2012-2017 focuses on three priority areas; tackling the obesogenic environment, the early years and provision of appropriate weight management services. The rationale is that if we can establish healthy eating and physical activity patterns from the start, where the place we live makes the healthy choice, the easy choice, and those identified as overweight or obese are supported to address their weight problems, we will be able to tackle obesity. Some high level impacts include tackling takeaways and the ‘fast food’ culture, making breastfeeding the norm and addressing weight within the context of the family.
