The Faculty of Public Health recommends that local authorities: 2

  • implement initiatives such as cooking clubs to encourage and develop cooking skills, and increase nutritional knowledge
  • integrate measures to address food poverty within existing local programmes and strategies, such as local obesity strategies
  • produce local information to explain the importance of healthy diet and what constitutes a healthy diet, as well as listing local suppliers where good quality affordable food is available.
