What do you think about the Island’s plans to help keep children at a healthy weight?

The Department of Health and Social Care wants to know what people think of its new strategy to keep Manx youngsters at a healthy size and if there are any barriers which could stop it from succeeding.

Officials at the department says obesity is one of the most preventable causes of ill health and premature death and that effective action needs to be taken now.

Those wanting to put views forward can do so on the online government consultation hub before the deadline on Monday, September 30.
