Abstract
This report offers a system-based analysis of some of the policy levers that can be used to make it easier for typical British families to make healthy choices and avoid the life-threatening and costly consequences of diet-related disease, while at the same time going further to protect us all from the disastrous effects of climate change. The three main findings conclude that: The diets of typical British families now pose the greatest threat to their health and survival; A multitude of factors in the food environment get in the way of families eating healthily; The balance of prices of their food is wrong, tipping them even further towards unhealthy diets. Funding grants were received from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and The Nuffield Foundation to support this research.
