The launch of the Government’s Obesity Strategy has been partly welcomed by Norfolk County Council’s Director of Public Health, Dr Louise Smith. Dr Smith said: ‚I generally welcome the publication of this long awaited strategy. In particular, the commitment to reduce sugar by 20% in foods is essential in the battle to reformulate food and drink that is marketed specifically to children.

‚The proposals and measures it contains are all good steps in the right direction but there are missed opportunities. There are no measures to address advertising to children and I am concerned that proposals for food reformulation are largely voluntary.‘
