Food Active evidence submission to the Health and Social Care Select Committee Follow Up Inquiry on Childhood Obesity

Food Active’s evidence to the Health and Social Care Committee Childhood Obesity Inquiry has been published.


Earlier this month, The Health and Social Care Committee followed up on its inquiry (Childhood obesity: Time for action), and its predecessor’s work (Childhood obesity: brave and bold action and Childhood obesity: follow-up) by holding an evidence session on childhood obesity. The inquiry called for written evidence from stakeholders to review the following:

  • Assessments of the Government’s progress in introducing measures to tackle childhood obesity
  • Views on the next steps that the Government should take
