Food Active Event: Promoting healthy weight – National policy to local action (23rd March 2016)

In light of recent publications including the PHE evidence report on sugar reduction, the Health Select Committee Inquiry report ‘Brave and Bold Action’ and the forthcoming National Childhood Obesity Strategy, the purpose of the day was to provide delegates from across the North West with an opportunity to review and consider local plans and priorities that promote healthy weight.

This event follows on from the national Sustainable Food Cities conference which was also being held in Liverpool on 22 March.

Objectives:
• To review recent developments in national policy focusing on childhood obesity and sugar reduction
• To consider research and evidence relating to food and healthy weight policy
• To consider a framework for local government to respond to national policy and impact on reducing unhealthy weight in local communities
