Research Opportunity - Impact of Food for Life on Improvements to Health Inequalities and Childhood Obesity
Public health commissioners have expressed that their top priorities when commissioning programmes such as Food for Life are reducing childhood obesity and health inequalities.
We are looking to understand the impact of Food for Life on improvements to health inequalities and childhood obesity in long-term commissioned programmes.
The Soil Association invites applications for the delivery of the following research question:
Using existing evidence and literature, what long-term, measurable difference has Food for Life commissions made in a local authority in terms of tackling the current obesity crisis?
- Understand the impact of Food for Life on obesity outcomes for primary school children in areas with long-term Food for Life commissioned programmes.
- Understand the impact of Food for Life on the current obesogenic environments and dietary change for primary school children in areas with long-term Food for Life commissioned programmes, using the Foresight Map.
- Identify robust proxy metrics for Food for Life’s impact on obesity for the future.
Application Deadline: 5pm on Monday 7th March.
