Healthy Weight Declaration

Devon County Council has become the first council in the South West to sign a Local Government Declaration to promote healthy weight across the county through improved food and drink provision.

The main aim of the Healthy Weight Declaration is for Local Authorities to commit to using its powers to improve the food and drink environments that we all live, work and play in. Creating a balanced offer of food and drink that enables the population to make a fair choice.

Public Health Devon have sought the information from residents of Devon which includes intelligence about the influencing factors that individuals and families make when making food and drink purchases. Residents were asked to share their ideas and views on related policies that might support people to make healthier lifestyle choices.
