The main aim of this research was to investigate local authorities (LAs) in England who were identified to have significant downward trends in childhood obesity from 2006/07 to 2015/16, in order to identify common approaches or interventions that may have contributed to reductions in childhood obesity.

Further aims were to highlight where future research would be beneficial to increase the evidence base for tackling childhood obesity and to inform and support LAs in their quest to reduce childhood obesity.
