​Healthy eating and physical activity in children are important for good health, growth and development, and achieving a healthy weight. Children who are above a healthy weight are more likely to have poorer health and wellbeing compared to children of a healthy weight.

NSW Health publishes a range of data, interactive statistics and reports about childhood overweight and obesity. These are available to you below.

Information about maintaining your child’s healthy weight can be found at​ Healthy Eating Active Living.
