013: The UK Obesity Strategy, Better Health And… Chlorinated Chicken?!

A man looking happy with the Better Health logo in the centre of the image.

The Obesity Strategy is the UK Government’s latest campaign to try and tackle the obesity crisis. Will it work? Is it too aggressive or not enough? Find out in this week’s podcast with Shaun and Nutri-iQ Founder Jim.

This podcast covers a whole host of areas including:

  • The Better Health campaign and app
  • Representation in advertising
  • How targeting food promotions could negatively affect poorer families
  • Calories on restaurant menus
  • How Boris has missed a massive trick with the Eat Out To Help Out campaign that blew Shaun’s mind

And please, if you haven’t already, go ahead and sign every one of the petitions below trying to save British Food Standards post-Brexit. None of us in the UK want to eat chlorinated chicken and hormone-filled beef like they do in the US. Please do what you can to help. Sign the petitions in the Links section below.

Let us know if you’ve got any questions at all from today’s podcast, share your thoughts on the Obesity Strategy and the Better Health Campaign or just drop us a question on something you’ve been a bit confused about recently. We’d love to hear from you.
