THE DEPARTMENT of Health has set new targets for 2019, following evidence that an increasing number of Thai children are reported to be overweight and too short for their age.

The department aims to boost the percentage of six to 14-year-olds with a healthy weight and height to 68 per cent in 2019, said Department of Health Director-General Dr Panpimol Wipulakorn. 

According to Panpimol, 10.6 per cent of under-fives are considered too short for their age while 9.1 per cent are overweight. Of six to 14-year-olds, 10.6 per cent are too short while 13.1 per cent struggle with obesity, she added.
