The food choices we make have a massive impact on our health, wellbeing, and environment. In many areas of the UK, there’s a lack of access to affordable, healthy food. Councils can help address this by providing healthy school meals for children, including at pre-schools. Research has shown eating less and better meat and dairy has many health benefits and doing so makes a significant contribution to climate and biodiversity goals.
