According to the EU Action Plan on Childhood Obesity 2014-2020, “the high level of overweight and obesity in children and young people is an area of particular concern. According to estimates from the WHO’s Childhood Obesity Surveillance Initiative (COSI), around 1 in 3 children in the EU aged 6-9 years old were overweight or obese in 2010. This is a worrying increase on 2008, when estimates were 1 in 4.”
