The Healthier Place, Healthier Future Podcast

By Healthier Place, Healthier Future
What does a fair an equal food system look like? Are we aware of how we are purposefully targeted by junk food marketing? How do you serve healthy food whilst owning a takeaway?


Food brings us together on many different levels, from where food is produced and consumed to sitting together around a dinner table together.

The Healthier Place Healthier Future Podcast is produced by the Pennine Lancashire Childhood Obesity Trailblazer team and aims to open the discussion on our relationship between the food environment and health.
