National Food Strategy Roundtable Discussion: Considerations, Opportunities, Action

Now is time to discuss this landmark report, ask important questions and explore ways of collaborating for action on creating a healthier more sustainable food system, ahead of the government setting out its promised white paper. What happens next? What are the opportunities and what will your contribution be?

This special edition Roundtable discussion will:

  • Explore what our food intake should look like by 2032 in order to achieve the targets
  • Ask how this strategy can deliver on nutrition and health
  • Explore the opportunities for delivering on it
  • Allow you to ask questions and reflect on how we collectively achieve the targets
Just some of the questions being explored:
  • How can we implement the National Food Strategy (NFS) recommendations to achieve a healthy sustainable food system and diet that improves health and planetary outcomes?
  • Is the NFS fit for purpose to deliver against the targets?
  • Does the strategy go far enough on sustainable and health diets?
  • How will it help address government targets to half childhood obesity by 2030 and support other government initiatives on nutrition?
  • What are the key opportunities?
  • Is anything missing?
  • How should the Food Standard Agency expand its remit?
  • What should the new reference diet look like?
  • How do we have a conversation with government?
