New Toolkit to encourage healthier fast food in low-income areas

A toolkit, developed by the Cities Institute at London Metropolitan University is available to support public health officers working to encourage healthier catering amongst fast food takeaways in low-income communities.

The toolkit is based on research funded by the Economic and Social Science Research Council and undertaken by the Cities Institute at London Metropolitan University, in partnership with the Greater London Authority, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Association of London Environmental Health Managers  and a network of public health officers involved in the London-based Healthier Catering Commitment.

It has involved a UK wide survey of healthier catering initiatives designed to identify best practice, and in-depth research with 30 best practice businesses from a range of some of the most deprived areas in London.
