  • Banning the placement of sweets and fatty snacks at or near shop tills and at children’s eye level
  • Taxing processed foods that are high in sugar or saturated fat
  • Introducing health checks for all school leavers, both primary and secondary
  • Allowing new urban roads only if they have cycle lanes
  • Establishing a dedicated central agency responsible for all aspects of obesity
