The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for a Fit and Healthy Childhood regularly produces wide-ranging reports which aim to assist policy-makers to reach decisions based on best evidence. The reports are below, listed in reverse chronological order. Click the report name to download it.

All reports are sponsored, but sponsors neither request nor receive approval of report contents. Producing reports is not possible without their financial support and we are extremely grateful for their generosity.

Each report is produced by a sub-group of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood, working with an independent Chair. The working group is comprised of volunteers from the APPG who have expressed an interest in the topic under scrutiny. The role of the Chair is to administer the group, draft the report, and ensure that the content meets the required standards for quality and objectivity. A list of contributors can be found at the beginning of each report.
