Children and Young People Living Well and Staying Well: New Zealand Childhood Obesity Programme Baseline Report 2016/17

This report was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Sport New Zealand, the Ministry for Primary Industries and the Health Promotion Agency. The report builds on the work that these organisations did in 2016 to develop an intervention logic model for reducing childhood obesity, which includes a set of 15 performance indicators that we will use to monitor the New Zealand Childhood Obesity Programme over the next five years.

The report includes a description of each of the indicators and presents a baseline view of their performance. It also provides a brief overview of the New Zealand Childhood Obesity Programme and an update on the programme’s first year of implementation (2015/16).

This report will form the basis of future monitoring reports on the New Zealand Childhood Obesity Programme. The first monitoring report will be published in 2018 and will provide information on the second year of implementation (2016/17) and updated performance against the reducing childhood obesity indicators.
