RSE Calls for Broader Focus on Healthier Future Strategy

The RSE have responded to the Scottish Government’s Healthier Future Strategy.

The Working Group supports the public health interventions, but calls for more conceptual clarity in the Scottish Government’s strategy. There is a strong focus on obesity in the Scottish Government’s strategy, and the RSE believes there should be a broader approach to promoting healthy eating and living among the whole population throughout their lives.

Other recommendations include; a stronger focus on local, community-led interventions; and greater skills development around healthy eating and activity.
