Please also provide for each of the past five years (2009 to 2013 inclusive), the number of children that have been placed on the child protection register where over-feeding/high BMI/obesity (or similar) was cited as a factor in the decision to place the child on the register.

Please could you also provide information on the number of children in the past three years, who were recorded at measurements done as part of the National Child Measurement Programme as weighing 16 stone or more (please divide numbers into Reception and Year 6 pupils).
