About Us

The Teen Weightwise website has been developed, and is managed by, the British Dietetic Association (BDA), the organisation that represents registered dietitians in the UK.

The website was originally funded by a project grant from the Department of Health and the content written by registered dietitians.

www.teenweightwise.com is an independent site, with unbiased, easy-to-follow hints and tips - based on the latest evidence - to help you manage your weight for good. It will help you take a look at your current eating habits and physical activity levels, and offer a practical approach to setting your own goals for lifestyle change.


Thanks to all the contributors to the site, including colleagues within the BDA, at the Department of Health, other experts in the field of obesity management and the consumers who have helped with the development of the site.

This site was last reviewed and updated March 2013.
