Preventing Childhood Obesity in the UK: A Realist Review

Project Details


The project aims to identify the key components of childhood obesity prevention interventions, which can be implemented successfully in the UK.
To achieve this, we are carrying out a ‘realist review’. This is a novel approach to looking at evidence that focuses on understanding how each intervention works (or not), for whom and in which contexts.
The success of an intervention is affected by the context in which it takes place. This might include the different types of school, the level of available resources or the characteristics of the children (such as age or where they live). Our review will explore these factors, in order to identify what makes an intervention successful and what things influence the success of its implementation.
