Healthy High Streets
News | 26 Oct 2017
How can we make our high streets healthier for children and young people? Innovation Unit announces the three London high streets we’ll be working in to tackle childhood obesity.
This week we are excited to officially launch Healthy High Streets, a project working in the high streets of Haringey, Southwark and Lambeth to transform the way local businesses make food choices and make it easier for children and young people to eat healthily.
In support of the launch, food businesses on each of the high streets are offering specially prepared, healthier meals FOR ONE WEEK. These meals will be available at a reduced cost for children and young people, and for parents who come in with their children.
Find out more about the launch week and local offers:
- West Green Road and High Road, Haringey from 29th October to 4th November
- Walworth Road and East street, Southwark from 4th November to 10th November
- Clapham Road and around Stockwell Tube station, Lambeth (dates to be confirmed end October)
