Three quarters of 5 year olds in Cardiff have a healthy weight. Only Monmouthshire and the Vale of Glamorgan have more children of healthy weight. However, this still means 1 in 4 do not have a healthy weight. Overweight children tend to become overweight adults, which can lead to short and long-term health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and some cancers.
