Bonus episode: China's food revolution

Chief Executive of the Food Foundation, Anna Taylor visits Chengdu, capital of the Sichuan Province in China where she was invited to share experiences from the UK on making food environments more healthy. As in the UK, diets dominated by highly processed products are driving the rise in childhood overweight and obesity in China, and Anna was keen to learn about the challenges the Chinese are facing.


In the company of Roland Kupka, UNICEF's regional nutrition advisor for East Asia Pacific, Fiona Watson, nutrition strategy consultant, China country office and Professor Kathryn Backholer co-director of the Global Centre for Preventive Health and Nutrition at Deakin University in Melbourne, they explore some of the digital initiatives that are transforming the city's food experience. They also find out what's happening in the city schools, and Nini’s Food Education Centre right in the heart of the city with its own forest food garden for children.
