Abstract:
The BUFFALO project (Burnley Food and Fitness Aimed at Lowering Obesity) is a children’s obesity prevention project targeting Year 5 (9 to 10 year old) pupils in primary schools in Burnley. It is co-ordinated and delivered by Burnley Borough Council in partnership with East Lancashire Primary Care Trust. The BUFFALO project involves curriculum input during the normal school day for one afternoon per week in each Year 5 class for the first school term, followed by a 10 week programme of after school activities. The BUFFALO project team commissioned the Centre for Public Health Research at the University of Chester to explore the impact of the BUFFALO project using data which had been routinely collected.
