Introducing the Food Active podcast

Introducing the Food Active podcast

The Food Active podcast aims to explore how we can collectively promote healthy weight, by looking at the social, environmental, economic and legislative factors which influence our lifestyle choices. 

We will be discussing the following topics and sharing best practice from a range of stakeholders, including local authority public health teams, schools, community groups, researchers and more.

  • How do we create healthier food environments?
  • How do we tackle the pervasive nature of food and drink marketing?
  • How does weight stigma affect individuals living with overweight and obesity?
  • What can local authorities do to promote healthier weight?

If there is a topic you would like us to discuss or if you would like to feature as a guest on our podcast, please email
