Healthy Lifestyles Cover

This report outlines the views of children and young people on factors that help and hinder them in having a healthy lifestyle.

This consultation process with children and young people formed part of the national consultation process with stakeholders for the National Obesity Policy.

It was commissioned by the Department of Health and conducted by the Citizen Participation Unit, Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA). This report presents the findings from consultations with children from primary schools and teenagers from Comhairle na nÓg (child and youth councils across local authorities in Ireland).
