We welcome and support the paper on diet and nutrition that the Food Standards Scotland Board is considering today.
Lorraine Tulloch, Programme Lead of Obesity Action Scotland said
“The need for action is now urgent and inevitable. A broad alliance of organisations is imploring Scottish Government to take regulatory action on several levels. These organisations include Obesity Action Scotland, other third sector organisations, the Scottish Directors of Public Health, the Scottish Parliament Health and Sport Committee and the Scottish Government’s own national nutrition advisory organisation, Food Standards Scotland.
This is an urgent issue and whilst we wait for action, avoidable cases of cancer and diabetes are being diagnosed in the Scottish population. We need to see bold and ambitious action now to change the food environment to make the healthy choice the easy choice.”
