Abstract Introduction It is clear that obesity tracks into adulthood with at least 70% of obese children becoming obese adults. Young people (YP) are our future parents and this nationally funded project aimed to develop training and educational resources to support School Nurses (SN's) work more effectively and to empower the YP themselves regarding nutritional health.Method We conducted a literature review and carried out a research study with YP and SN's to gather their views on nutritional health and how this could be supported. This involved a survey of SN's (n760), 5 focus groups with YP and 2 with SN's. Results SN's wanted specific training and knowledge including practical tools to work with YP. Themes from the YP's research included: cost of food in schools, lack of consistent information, influence of peers, impact of parental perceptions.Outcomes Development of: A Short Film - in partnership with YP, the film creatively portrays the themes from the research. It aims to inform commissioning and educate professionals on YP's views on support required. (Launch of film May 2017 positively supported by local authority DPH).APP -national tool developed with YP to support behaviour change it can be used directly with YP or alongside a healthcare professional.Training on Young People Nutritional Health for SN's -training is being cascaded nationally with local SN champions having a full resource pack to then deliver the training to their own workforce for sustainability. Evaluation Excellent feedback with full evaluation in progress. External funding details Funded by the Burdett Nursing Trust
