The Information Centre has published 'National Child Measurement Programme: 2006/07 school year, headline results'. The report provides high-level analysis of the prevalence of "obese" and "overweight" children in Reception (aged 4â?"5 years) and Year 6 (aged 10â?"11 years), measured in the school year 2006/07. The key findings are that: in Reception, almost one in four of the children measured was either overweight or obese. In Year 6, this rate was nearly one in three; the prevalence of obesity is significantly higher in boys than in girls in both age groups; the prevalence of obesity is significantly higher in Year 6 than in Reception; the percentage of children who are overweight is only slightly higher in Year 6 than in Reception; and the percentage of children who are overweight is similar for boys and girls in year 6: in Reception, this rate is slightly higher for boys than for girls .
