Fresh Start: A framework for healthy and sustainable diets

The UK Health Forum is calling on the Government to ensure that the new food and agriculture bill supports a joined up food system that promotes human health alongside environment objectives. The call comes as a three-part report, Fresh Start: A framework for healthy and sustainable diets, has found that the whole of the UK’s current food system, from farm- to- fork, is failing to support the Government’s healthy eating goals, low risk drinking guidelines, and the environment.

The three parts are available from the following links:

Recommendations for action 
outlines a 10-point framework that could be supported within a joined-up UK-wide healthy and sustainable Agriculture Bill and food system policy

Policy options review 
analyses the evidence across 40 food system actions, from farm- to- fork, which have been implemented around the world

Situational analysis
examines how food and alcohol production and consumption patterns compare to official recommendations, and their impacts on health and the environment
