Healthy Growth

Overview

Healthy growth is one of the most important indicators of overall health, development and wellbeing. As parents and carers, it can be hard to know whether or when to be concerned about our child’s growth or weight. Children’s growth is highly variable which means the amount of food they need is constantly changing. The information below is based on the best evidence we have for supporting healthy growth in children and reducing the risk of weight issues and eating disorders.
