Disability and obesity: the prevalence of obesity in disabled children. This report shows that children who have a limiting illness are more likely to be obese or overweight, particularly if they also have a learning disability. Our analysis showed that 40% of children aged under 8 years old with a limiting illness and learning disability are obese or overweight compared with 22.4% of children who have neither condition.
Data Atlas brings together a range of data and statistics on child and maternal health into one easily accessible hub. It has been recently redeveloped to make it easier to use and interpret and includes measures from the National Child Measurement Programme and other indicators that have assocations with weight.
