Council believes that childhood obesity is an important issue affecting society today. Council further believes that action needs to be taken to prevent a looming health crisis and further supports recent Scottish Government initiatives to curb this.
Council believes that recent announcements in the media surrounding some of the proposals are unhelpful and ill-informed. Council believes that the solution is not making unhealthy food more difficult to access, but to enable people to eat more healthily easily.
Therefore Council support the creation of a commission to investigate long-term sustainable solutions to reduce obesity in Scotland
