The policies and approaches we need to change food environments globally (#32)
This presentation will present the NOURISHING framework of food policy actions needed to address obesity. NOURISHING was developed by WCRF International with the objectives of formalising a comprehensive policy package to address obesity through food policy; providing global level recommendations within which policy makers have the flexibility to select specific policy options suitable for their national/local contexts and populations; and of providing a framework through which the evidence for each of the fields of action and policy options can be systematically categorised, updated, interpreted and ultimately communicated to policy-makers.
NOURISHING covers three policy domains: behaviour change communication; food environments; and food systems. The presentation will explain the rationale for including each of these domains, and the policy areas within them—and why each is necessary for an effective, public health approach to obesity prevention.
