Plans to introduce a fast food restaurant "exclusion zone" around schools in Milton Keynes will be put to the public, after councillors agreed to push forward with the idea.
The exclusion zone would mean fast food restaurants could no longer open new premises within 400 metres of primary and secondary schools in Milton Keynes.
"We want to do all we can to encourage young people eat healthily. Research shows that where hot food takeaways are situated very close to school, young people will use them regularly. This approach, which could mean stopping new hot food takeaway premises opening very close to schools, is just one action that the Council is considering to support healthy eating locally."

£40 million is to be invested in two ground-breaking cancer research projects in Cambridge.
The money from Cancer Research UK will allow scientists from the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute to gain a deeper understanding of what factors cause cancer, and to build a virtual reality 3D map of breast cancer.
It's hoped ultimately, it could help prevent more cancers and reduce the global burden of the disease.
The main aim of our Grand Challenge is to understand the causes of cancer. Every cancer retains an archaeological trace, a record in its DNA, of what caused it.
It's that record that we want to explore to find out what caused the cancer.
We're going to sequence the DNA of thousands of cancer samples that have been collected from many different countries around the world, and study them to see what archaeological trace they contain. By doing this, we hope to figure out what caused those cancers.
ITV News Anglia's Liz Summers spoke to Maureen Craig from Ely who was diagnosed with kidney cancer.
A cancer charity in Cambridge is calling for greater awareness of a so-called 'silent killer'.
Research by Kidney Cancer UK has found 70 % of patients didn't feel unwell before their diagnosis.
The survey also reveals many people only find out they have kidney cancer because of a scan for an unrelated condition.
"Part of the problem of diagnosing kidney cancer is it's a cuckoo in the nest so the patient might have night sweats, they might just be losing a little bit of weight, they might feel flu like or just have a persistent cough so there are many other conditions that actually a GP might be looking at well before it is recognised that it is kidney cancer."
