This report by the Lambeth Public Health Team aims to provide evidence to further support policy to manage the proximity of takeaway fast food outlets to schools to help reduce obesity in Lambeth. Obesity is a key issue in Lambeth, with over half of its residents being at an excessive weight and its childhood obesity levels above the national average.

There are many recommendations including schools having a more active role in providing a supportive health promoting environment for their students and to actively promote the Healthy Start Scheme in Lambeth to residents and to local retailers who sell fruit and vegetables, to register to receive these vouchers. The report covers a wide range of research including the impact of poor diet and inequalities and local feedback from Lambeth residents on takeaway consumption.
