Britain's Fat Fight

11 May 2018

We're proud to have signed Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's original letter to Jeremy Hunt on childhood obesity. Now you can do the same.

Department of Health has responded to the letter saying that the Government is delivering a 'world-leading' obesity plan and is reviewing whether it needs to 'consider further action'. At School Food Matters we'd certainly believe that further action is needed with actions from 2016's Childhood Obesity still outstanding!

Please share this link with your networks so that we can continue to add signatures to Hugh's letter and encourage Government to get cracking on chapter two of the Childhood Obesity Plan.
