Abstract

The proportions of overweight and obesity in seven-year-old children in two environmentally different UK based centres: Avon and the Isle of Man (IOM) have been compared. Children in the IOM (particularly boys) were more likely to be overweight and obese, when classified by body mass index (weight [kg]/height2 [m]) (BMI), and waist circumference (WC).
