The aim of the Local Government Declaration on Sugar Reduction and Healthier Food is to achieve a public commitment to improve the availability of healthier food and drinks and to reduce the availability and promotion of unhealthy options. It should be endorsed by the elected leaders of London boroughs and relevant senior officers such as directors of public health.

The declaration is open to all local authorities in London and beyond. To sign the declaration the local authority has to commit to take at least six different actions across six different key areas. In addition, the local authority commits to report on progress annually.

Action can include continuing support to existing initiatives as long as there is a commitment to new initiatives as well.

This support pack includes a menu of initiatives under each key area of action for local authorities to choose from. Local authorities can adapt the wording of the initiatives based on local conditions, as long as commitments cover all six areas and some of them are new.
