§ Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have a means of assessing the ability of 16 year-olds to buy and prepare meals that constitute a healthy diet and are within their budget; and, if so, how they make this assessment. [HL1759]
§ Lord Hunt of Kings Heath
There is no comprehensive and authoritative data on the purchasing and preparation of food by 16 year-olds. Information that is available suggests that habits depend on a range of factors such as whether they are in employment, living within a family or living independently. The Government are currently considering a campaign to promote healthy eating among young adults.
