What makes it harder for London's children to be healthier?

28 August 2019

At SFM we're really pleased to read a report from London's Child Obesity Taskforce that puts children right at the heart of the research.

The report, published during the summer, tells the stories of four children living in London. We follow the four through an average day and get a clear picture of the challenges they encounter as they consider what to eat and drink and where to safely play outside.

It's worth noting that during the School Food Plan in 2013, this child-centred approach was identified as one of the three ingredients to a successful school food service. Perhaps by giving children and young people a voice in the childhood obesity debate we can design programmes and interventions that get us closer to our shared goal - child obesity halved by 2030.
