Developed by Health Education England, the NoObesity: Professional app aims to
enhance and support the knowledge and skills of health and care professionals in preventing children
becoming overweight and obese, by equipping families to manage their own well being. The companion
NoObesity: Family app helps by providing tailored advice to families, allowing them to set and track
health goals, identify potential barriers and record their progress.
The NoObesity: Family and NoObesity: Professional apps can be linked, via a QR code, which enables the
family to share their goals and progress with a you, a health or care worker. For example, this could be
during a GP consultation or a visit to the local children’s centre. You will only see the family’s survey
results, goals and progress. This will allow you to better tailor the support you provide to the family to
help them live healthier lives and so reduce childhood obesity.
