One in four pupils in Fife obese

7th March 2008

New figures have shown that schoolchildren in the Fife area have the highest levels of obesity in Scotland.

The report from NHS Fife’s director of public health, Dr Gina Radford, showed that more than a quarter of primary year one pupils in 2005/06 were overweight. However, Fife Council has said that work was under way in schools to try to address the issues with a range of initiatives including healthy eating advice and co-ordinators to try to ensure pupils were active and took exercise.
