Advice on childhood obesity package

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

The request was successful.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Ministry of Health,

On 19 October the government announced a new package of measures to combat childhood obesity ("Government targets overweight mums, toddlers, to combat childhood obesity ", Stuff, 19 October 2015). I wish to request the following information under the OIA:

* All advice (e.g. cabinet papers, briefing notes, aides memoire, but excluding emails unless they constituted formal advice) on the new childhood obesity package. I am particularly interested in advice around sugar taxes and why they were not pursued as a policy measure.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about
this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
