Poor eating habits reflect the environment in which an individual lives. It is a misconception that poor eating habits are simply the result of under-awareness and perseverance. It is a misconception that poor eating habits are simply the result of under-awareness and perseverance. The fact is that if we want to address the epidemic of nutrition-related illnesses, we will not solve this simply by raising awareness. We want to overcome the challenges in the food systems from all four aspects, which are closely interconnected and important in addressing this social challenge; aspects of health, the environment, social inequalities and economic aspects. Above all, all aspects are closely linked to political decisions (laws, regulations, financial incentives, etc.), because, as mentioned above, good information on healthy eating alone is not enough. 

 

Main focus:

  • is on measures that go beyond nutrition education to supportive measures that make healthy choices (affordability, advertising restriction, clear labeling, etc.).
