A Healthier Future - Scotland's Diet and Healthy Weight Delivery Plan

02 July 2018

Today Scottish Government launched A Healthier Future - Scotland’s Diet and Healthy Weight Delivery Plan

 

We welcome today’s publication.  Overweight and obesity is impacting on the lives of 2 out of every 3 adults in Scotland.  If we want to ensure a healthier future for Scots we need the Scottish Government to implement the wide range of measures it is proposing.   

 

We know that the public support such action being taken and this was confirmed by the responses to A Healthier Future consultation at the beginning of the year. The next phase of the Scottish Government’s work on this issue is crucial.  We must see urgent implementation of the proposals to restrict promotion, marketing and advertising of food and drink high in fat, sugar and salt.  Only then will we create a food environment where it is easier to make the healthy choice.
