Too many of us have a poor diet and an unhealthy weight, which can have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing. This is in part because we generally consume too many calories and too much fat, sugar and salt.

If you are interested in leading or contributing to this consultation please send an email to [email protected].
The deadline for responses is Friday the 14th of December.
