Eatwell Guide
We had planned to work with Dairy APPG Simon Hoare MP to voice our concerns about the Eatwell Guide to new Public Health Minister Nicola Blackwood. However, he has been promoted to the role of Parliamentary Private Secretary to Farming Minister George Eustice, and so is stepping down as chair of the APPG. We are in touch with Dairy UK, who provide the secretariat to the APPG, and will work with the new chair to raise this issue with the new public health minister.
We also submitted freedom of information requests to Public Health England to find out further information on the basis on which the recent revisions to the Eatwell Guide were made and who was involved – we are expecting an answer to these shortly. We have also compiled a list of organisations we could work with to challenge the recommendations.
