How big of an issue is childhood obesity and how can this be combatted by teachers and parents

Childhood obesity and connected health issues, such as diabetes are often preventable. For this reason, the WHO prioritises the prevention of these conditions in youth, particularly because poor dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle are among the primary causes of noncommunicable diseases. These conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and particular types of cancer, substantially contribute to the global pressure of disease, death and disability.

The pupils of Huntingtree Primary School can enjoy some fresh air during their day, no matter the weather conditions. If it is raining or too hot, the pupils can gather underneath the playground canopy and continue having fun. The shelter installed at the nursery area allows the younger children to spend some of their activities outside, in an alternative learning environment.

Visitors to the school are now greeted by a smart, professional entrance signposted by the canopy. If they are using the inter-comm system, they can wait under a shelter, away from the elements. This is a great way of making the best first impression. Parents can also wait under the cover at the end of the day, while they wait for their children.
