We want to see delivery of policy commitments to improve breastfeeding rates, mental health and wellbeing, and reducing childhood obesity. Our 2020 report summarises the evidence and outlines our priorities.

Strategy is only useful if it is implemented. The challenge ahead is to deliver all of Welsh Government’s commitments at pace and at sufficient scale. Once done, future iterations of this report will show that we turned a corner in 2020 and beyond delivering real improvements in child health throughout Wales.
