Obesity has become a significant public health problem in the UK. A quarter of children leaving school are now classed as overweight. In addition, one in four adults are now considered obese and current trends suggest this could exceed fifty percent by 2050.
Being overweight can have a detrimental affect on the mental health of individuals, self-esteem and also increases the risk of developing a range of serious diseases.
