The commitment of my Child Obesity Taskforce is to halve the percentage of London's children who are overweight at the start of primary school and obese at the end of primary school by 2030. Child obesity is a complex issue and for rates to reduce across London action is needed across the city. Over the next three years child obesity will be addressed as part of the Healthy Food, Healthy weight recovery mission. Specific targets and metrics will be set following further engagement with key partners to refine the mission.
