S5W-03679: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 11 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish details of its updated strategy on diet and obesity, and how will this align with its commitment to a Good Food Nation Bill.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 1 November 2016

One of the core objectives for Scotland to become a Good Food Nation is for diet related disease to be in decline. This aligns with our intention announced in the Programme for Government to set out and consult in 2017 on the development of a new Diet and Obesity Strategy and the content of a Good Food Nation Bill.
