The already delayed childhood obesity strategy will not be published until the summer, the government has said  and campaigners say it is unlikely to include a sugar tax.

.

It is a very complex issue and there is a lot of work going on to get it right, said a Department of Health spokesperson. There are a lot of different issues that need considering and we want to make sure it is right when we put it out. David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt have said they want it to be a game-changing moment.

.

The news from the ministry will anger health charities and campaigners, who say there is an urgent need for action on obesity, including introducing a tax on sugared foods. Cancer Research UK accused the government of failing children, saying that every day counted.

.

David Cameron has called childrens obesity a crisis and yet the government has failed the next generation by stalling on one of its own health priorities, said Alison Cox, the charitys director of prevention. While the government delays, more children will become obese.

.

Our survey shows people want the government to act to fight childrens obesity  eight out of 10 think its a problem. To help prevent thousands of cancer cases we want a ban on junk food ads during family viewing times, a sugary drinks tax and more sugar taken out of food. The future health of our children depends on strong action right now.

.

The childhood obesity strategy was expected in December, but delayed amid speculation that the campaign for a sugary drinks tax  supported by the restaurateur Jamie Oliver, medical charities and the House of Commons health select committee  had become embarrassingly popular for a government disinclined to interfere with the market by imposing new taxes.

.

The launch of the strategy was then said to have been scheduled for January, which slipped to February or even March. Now the department says publication will be in the summer.

.

Ben Reynolds, of the Childrens Food Campaign, which has been working with Jamie Oliver to press for a sugary drinks tax, said: It would be disappointing if a sugary drinks tax is not included.

.

He said they understood that the government might instead intend to put pressure on the food and drinks industry to act by cutting sugar and making products healthier, with the threat of fiscal action if they do not comply.
