3e Children's Weight Management Resources

Below are some resources and links to tools and handouts that might be helpful for families supporting children who have weight issues. These tools (mostly PDF Files) have been developed, collated and modified as a result of our experience of supporting families in the 3e programme for children aged 2-5 who were overweight.**

Additionally Devon County Council has launched One Small Step - an all round approach to improvong people's health and well-being including healthy weight, quitting smoking and cutting down on alcohol and much more.
