This document proposes a range of actions to improve diet and weight in Scotland. It draws on experience of implementing the Obesity Route Map, the learning from tackling other public health challenges such as alcohol use and smoking, and a growing body of evidence on the action necessary to improve the health of the whole population.
Tackling obesity has already been identified as a priority in Programme for Government with key commitments to limit the marketing of food high in fat, sugar and salt and provide more support for people with type 2 diabetes to lose weight. In launching the consultation, the Government announced funding of £42 million over the next 5 years to expand these services.
