Weighing toddlers is crucial for monitoring changes in health. An extreme change in weight or being at a weight far from the norm can be a sign of poor health.
As a result, weighing has formed a critical part of the growing up process. It is recommended that babies are weighed every month for their first six months, then from six months to one year weighing every two months should suffice.
Government statistics show that nearly a third of children aged 2 to 15 in England are now classified as overweight or obese.
And this week, the BBC reported that millennials are set to be the most overweight generation since records began. The report is quite timely, since Marsden has just partnered with an innovative scheme that has been set up to help curb the trend of increasing obesity rates.

With a firm reputation - and over 90 years experience - of weighing in the medical sector, Marsden has built a portfolio which includes being the leading provider of scales to NHS hospitals and supplying some of the country’s leading slimming groups. We are a brand keen to support the fight against obesity, so have now joined forces with another leading slimming project: Man V Fat.

Since its emergence, telehealth technology has changed the face of monitoring patient health.
Now, according to research of a world leading university, telehealth solutions could help reduce hospital readmission rates by 27%.
Telehealth is the remote collection of patient data, and transferring the information to a device or database. It assists in the monitoring and diagnosis of patients, and enables more convenient medical assessment for patients. Because patients can be monitored remotely at home, it can also lead to reduced hospital costs at a time when resources on the NHS are strained.
The National Obesity Forum has recently outlined how pharmacists could help curb the obesity epidemic.
In a blog post about obesity and weight loss, Pharmacy Management Magazine highlighted that obesity awareness needs to be higher - many people who are overweight are actually unaware of it.
To help pharmacies and GPs with increasing awareness of obesity, what the side effects are and how to know if you are overweight, Marsden has produced a free A3-sized obesity awareness poster.
