Weight Management in Children


These webpages have been designed to provide information to support children aged 0 to 18 years to manage their weight.

The Complications from Excess Weight team at NHS England have produced two webinars to help support families. Please click on ‘webinars’ link above.

  1. Webinar 1: Goal setting to provide practical tips on how to set tangible goals
  2. Webinar 2: How to support children with additional needs.

For Somerset Patients: In Somerset, from February 2017, children referred for paediatric dietetic weight management advice will be sent self-help, age appropriate resources along with website links to access additional information. Parents/carers will be directed to the Healthy Weight Somerset website on
