Local Government Declaration on Sugar Reduction and Healthier Eating (LGD)

The Local Government Declaration of Sugar Reduction and Healthier Eating (LGD) is an initiative promoted by Sustain and the Mayor of London to help London local authorities tackle the proliferation and marketing of unhealthy food and drinks. By signing the declaration at the Health and Wellbeing Board in November 2018, Barnet Health and Wellbeing Board has committed to taking action across six different areas:

  • Advertising and sponsorship
  • Improving the food controlled or influenced by the council
  • Reducing prominence of sugary drinks and promoting free drinking water
  • Supporting businesses and organisations to improve their food offer
  • Holding related public events
  • Raising public awareness
