Title of Presentation: ‘CHAMP & CHAMPiNiños’

Gibraltar has a worse childhood weight problem than the UK and other comparable countries. Local professionals, NGOs and businesses together created “CHAMP” (Children, Healthy & Active! Multi-agency Programme) in 2018 to make healthy life choices the clear and easy choices for the community, targeting childhood obesity in the first instance.

“CHAMP Spring Launch” in April was followed by the “Summer of Nutritious Goodness” and the “Autumn of Getting Fit & Active”. “Festive Cheers and Good News” at the end of 2018 would be marked by national policy changes.  

CHAMP seeks to make everyone on this Rock a CHAMPion, and turn Gibraltar’s children into happy and healthy “CHAMPiNiños”!
