The aim of this project is:
To tackle London's obesogenic environment by working with high street businesses to generate evidence and learnings about how to positively influence the food provision on London's high streets, to make the healthier choice the easiest choice for people and communities.

Specifically, this project aims to help tackle childhood obesity and health inequalities within London.

This will be achieved through:

1. Using a fair and transparent process to selecting 2 high streets on which to pilot initiatives (to be done by the commissioner in advance)
2. Using largely pre-existing data to understand the challenges, opportunities and assets within a place including Great Weight Debate findings
3. Engaging with businesses or groups of businesses on the selected high streets to ensure participation in the project (providers to include their approach to how they would do this in their bids)
4. Working with partners across London, including the private sector, social entrepreneurs and charities, to generate visible, consumer-facing solutions through an innovation challenge
5. Rapidly piloting and evaluating 2 of the solutions in the London high streets selected, taking a 'whole high street' approach
6. Sharing and communicating the findings for local and policy level impact
