In a nutshell: The BUFFALO (Burnley Food and Fitness Aimed at Lowering Obesity) programme has been successfully running in Burnley for the last five years. Run by the local council and the PCT, the scheme focuses on nine and ten year olds and is mostly funded by lottery money. Children take part in cookery and activity sessions, and spend time on an allotment. The number of obese children has fallen by ten percent.
