We all want our children to grow up to be happy, healthy adults, but it can sometimes be hard to know how. Research shows that modern lifestyles can make it more difficult to be a healthy weight. If we carry on as we are, 9 out of 10 children could grow up with dangerous amounts of fat in their bodies, putting them at greater risk of cancers, type 2 diabetes and heart disease in later life.
Getting it right from the start is really important. There is much recent evidence to show that what happens in your child's first years of life has a big effect on how healthy he or she will be in the future.
