Health campaigners fear the government will use the Brexit vote to divert attention from David Cameron’s childhood obesity strategy.

The prime minister’s strategy was delayed to make way for the EU referendum, and there is now speculation that it could face further setbacks following the Brexit vote. 

David Cameron personally headed up the working party for the campaign, and many fear his imminent departure will also hamper progress.

Jennifer Rosborough, campaign manager for campaign group Action on Sugar, said: “We urge the prime minister to do the right thing and announce details of his much awaited childhood obesity strategy before his exit, and leave behind a lasting legacy for the future health of the nation.”

On the morning after the historic vote, British Baker spoke to industry representatives about what Brexit might mean for bakers.
