In response to the increasing prevalence of obesity in children and adolescents, numerous interventions with the potential to reduce obesity levels or associated risk of chronic diseases in children and youths have been implemented across the UK, including the West Midlands. However, few of these interventions have been systematically evaluated and consequently, there is a need to examine their effectiveness. This report outlines an evaluation of seven child weight management programmes that were in place in the West Midlands region during July 2007-July 2009.
