The Food Active Podcast

The Food Active Podcast aims to discuss how we can collectively promote healthy weight, by looking at the social, environmental, economic and legislative factors which influence our lifestyle choices.
We invite a range of guests including local authority staff, elected members, schools, campaign groups and more to explore the following questions.
  • 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?

You can catch all our latest episodes below, and make sure you subscribe, rate and share with any friends, family and colleagues who may be interested.
