Work Package 4: Nutrition policies​

Turning project results into policies

Problems associated with poor nutrition and unhealthy eating habits have affected and will continue to affect many generations of Europeans.

This project team aims support the implementation, transfer and integration of the results and outcomes of the Best-ReMaP Joint Action into national and EU-level policies in the areas of food reformulation, food marketing and public procurement of healthy food in public settings.

Benefits to European citizens

Lasting, sustainable policies will contribute:

  • to an increased offer of healthier options of processed foods (by reducing salt, sugar and fat content) available in EU (super)markets;
  • to a reduced marketing pressure of unhealthy foods and drinks on children;
  • to a higher quality of menus within public institutions.

Expert Area

This WP will strongly collaborate with the core WPs; and the outcomes regarding food reformulation, food marketing and advertising to children and public procurement will be channeled into a series of meetings both on European level and nationally in a group of participating countries. These events will primarily involve policy makers, but in a second round also include other stakeholders such as food producers and retailers.
