star this property answer text <p>Obesity and poor diet are risk factors for bowel cancer in young people.</p><p>The second chapter of the world-leading childhood obesity plan was published in June 2018. This builds on the real progress made since the publication of chapter one in 2016, particularly in reformulation of the products our children eat and drink most. In chapter two we have set a bold ambition to halve childhood obesity by 2030 and significantly reduce the gap in obesity between children from the most and least deprived areas by 2030.</p><p>Many of the measures in both chapters of the plan will have an impact on tackling obesity across all age groups. These include the soft drinks industry levy, sugar reduction and wider calorie reformulation programme, restricting promotions and calorie labelling in restaurants which will improve our eating habits and reduce the amount of sugar we consume.</p><p>‘Childhood obesity: a plan for action, chapter 2’ is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/childhood-obesity-a-plan-for-action-chapter-2" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/childhood-obesity-a-plan-for-action-chapter-2</a></p>

Pricing arrangements are the responsibility of Member States and are highly context specific, but the Department supports information sharing and mutual learning initiatives, where appropriate, in seeking to improve value for money for country procurement budgets.</p> more like this
