Members of the Committee on Children and Youth Affairs

The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Children and Youth Affairs has published a report on childhood obesity.

The report makes 20 recommendations based on hearings and consultation it undertook during 2018.

The committee held ten meetings over a span of seven months and met with a wide range of individuals and groups with an interest in this issue. The committee also hosted a public consultation during April and May 2018 and has considered the submissions received from this consultation during its examination of the issue. The evidence illustrated the scale of childhood obesity in Ireland, which is also detailed in the report.
