Increased HAF uptake
Affordable food clubs in every neighbourhood
Improved food retail offer
Improvement in childhood obesity data
Uptake of services by eligible population

Number of organisations achieving awards or having policies to underpin healthy food offer
Question of what outcome we should be measuring as top level marker of success e.g. reduced hospitalisations/deaths attributable to weight/diet? reduced child referrals to live lighter scheme?

In addition to council’s actions on advertising, Sheffield Hallam Uni want to do some work on tackling unhealthy advertising on the Uni campus (e.g. currently, brands like Dominos advertise on campus, at freshers fairs etc. – what if they were replaced with local, healthy brands?)
