THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This conference will be a timely opportunity to discuss the recently published draft diet and obesity strategy, A healthier future - action and ambitions on diet, activity and healthy weight.
It is bringing together stakeholders with policymakers to assess the key issues and next steps for tackling obesity in Scotland, with the Scottish Government consulting on the strategy’s proposals.
Delegates will consider the potential implications of the strategy’s proposals for the food and drink industry, health practitioners and consumers - including: action to limit price promotion on food and drink products that are high in fat, salt and sugar (HFSS); extending restrictions on the advertising of HFSS products to all programmes before the 9pm watershed; practical support for food manufacturers to reformulate their products; and initiatives to encourage greater levels of physical activity.
