Why is CFK important? 

There is an ever increasing incidence of obesity and chronic disease amongst children and the CFK project aims to develop programmes and interventions to help tackle this epidemic. Our children need help! 

- Over a quarter of 4-5 year olds and almost one in two (41%) of 10-11 year olds are overweight/obese in the UK https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/nat... -

- Obese children are more likely to become obese adults with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and some cancers https://stateofchildhealth.rcpch.ac.uk/evidence/prevention-of-ill-health...

- Over 60% of children’s diets come from ultra-processed foods in the UK https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/223573/urgent-action-needed-reduce-harm-...

Activities

We are working together with communities to turn children and their families away from ultra-processed foods and inspiring them to choose real and natural foods, the way nature intended, to improve their health and well-being.
