One million plus UK people live in urban areas where it’s difficult to buy affordable fresh food, elevating their obesity risk. Guys and St Thomas’ Charity wanted to identify and evaluate opportunities to reduce obesity through policy-making.
The FoodSync team critically evaluated current and upcoming policy measures around obesity. The team then assessed the feasibility of a range of different approaches to reducing obesity. By addressing food deserts, for example, and improving food environments.
FoodSync’s final report - packed with well-researched, innovative ideas - has become a key tool in policy-makers’ discussions to create healthier food environments in London and other urban spaces by influencing partners and informing programme plans.
AT A GLANCE
FoodSync have delivered a well-researched, thoughtful report with innovative ideas for how we can drive greater impact in tackling childhood obesity. We’ll use this report to influence partners and policy makers, as well as to inform our own programme plan moving forward.
