Food Active are delighted to have contributed to the latest series of reports from the All Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood, of whom we are a member.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood have published their latest reports as the links between how we produce our food and its effects on the environment and human health have been highlighted by the Covid-19 global pandemic.

Food Active are an official member of the group, and contributed to both reports to a number of chapters across the two reports.

Introducing the two-part study the APPG Chair, Steve McCabe MP, said that Emerging Dietary Patterns: Impact on Child Health’ and ‘In the Wake of a Pandemic’ show that what we eat and how it is produced are essential components of our present and future health and wellbeing.

He described the findings (some based on first hand experiences of nutrition during the pandemic) as proof of an urgent need to create a ‘regenerative food system that can deliver environmental, social and economic healing – and leave no one behind.’

Check out the reports below.
