Have your say on tackling obesity in Wales
Date published: 04/02/2019
Welsh Government has launched the Healthy Weight: Healthy Wales consultation, which sets out its national ambitions to prevent and reduce obesity in Wales.
The consultation runs until Friday 12 April 2019, and the Welsh Government would like to hear your views on how they can best tackle obesity.
Welsh Government is consulting on a draft policy that has four main themes:
- Leadership and enabling change: to drive improved leadership and accountability to deliver Healthy Weight: Healthy Wales across all sectors;
- Healthy environments: to create an environment which supports everyone to make healthier food and activity choices;
- Healthy settings: to create healthy settings so that people can access healthy meals, snacks and drinks and be physically active;
- Healthy People: to provide the opportunities for people and communities to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
That’s why they have organised a series of regional public launch events across Wales. The nearest event is in South East Wales on Tuesday 12 March 2019 from 6.30 to 8.30pm at the Riverfront Centre, Kingsway, Newport, NP20 1HG.
Details on all events throughout Wales can be found by visiting www.gov.wales/newsroom
