It is very disappointing that that the Government has once again delayed the publication of its Childhood Obesity Strategy. For the sake of our children’s health it’s vital we tackle the obesity epidemic which is jeopardizing their future wellbeing.

We urge the Government to use the next few weeks to ensure the strategy is  comprehensive and bold and one that  truly has  children’s health and wellbeing  at its heart. To ensure the strategy is effective it must include measures to significantly  reduce sugar, saturated fat and salt from food and drinks, close loopholes to reduce children’s exposure to junk food marketing  and include full implementation of the soft drinks industry levy.
