Last year’s much-anticipated Childhood Obesity Plan set out to significantly reduce England’s childhood obesity rate over the next 10 years. This seminar will examine the Plan one year on – what has been achieved so far in terms of sugar reduction and what impact has this had on the industry? What is left to achieve and where do efforts need to be focussed?
