Welsh Government seeks innovative ideas to tackle childhood obesity, 24/03/17 [W]

The Welsh Government is inviting companies and research organisations to apply for a share of £1 million funding to develop innovative solutions to childhood obesity in Wales.

Currently, by the age 11, more than 40% of Welsh children are either obese or overweight. Research shows that the majority of these children will become obese as adults. The Welsh Government is looking for solutions to make the food and drink available to children healthier and more affordable, reducing levels of salt sugar and saturated fat whilst increasing the levels of vitamins, minerals and fibre on offer.
