Parliamentary questions
22 April 2013
E-004510-13
Question for written answer
to the Council
Rule 117
Daciana Octavia Sârbu (S&D)

 Subject:  Child health strategy
 Answer(s) 

Data recently published by Unicef(1) reveals an alarmingly high percentage of overweight children in EU countries. In terms of body mass index, over 20% of all 11-, 13‐ and 15-year-olds in a number of Member States are overweight. The World Health Organisation now refers to an ‘obesity epidemic’.

The Irish Presidency has made a commitment to tackle childhood obesity. In a meeting with health ministers on 4 and 5 March 2013, it called for an Action Plan on Childhood Obesity; it was agreed that the High Level Group on Nutrition and Physical Activity would respond to this request.

This action is to be welcomed. However, would the Council agree that childhood obesity should be tackled as part of a broader child health strategy in order that all challenges linked to child health may be addressed?

Will the Council support my call for a child health strategy — based on concrete measures and backed by proper funding — to be adopted by the Commission?
