Lambeth becomes the first London borough to sign healthy foods charter
The charter, supported by the food charity Sustain, aims to reduce the amount of sugar consumed and promote the consumption of healthier food in outlets under the council's control. Lambeth has now committed to taking action across six key areas: advertising and sponsorship, improving food provided in settings controlled by council, delivering healthier public events, reducing prominence of sugary drinks and promoting free drinking water, and raising public awareness of the benefits of healthier eating.
