Below is a message from Corinna Hawkes of the World Cancer Research Fund International about a new policy database called Nourishing
As the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) approaches (19-21 November), we’re pleased to let you know that we’ve updated our NOURISHING policy database with more policy actions from around the world.
We have included many of the exciting actions taking place in Latin America, including in nutrition labelling (“N”), offering healthy foods in schools (“O”), restricting food advertising (“R”) and improving the nutritional quality of the whole food supply (“I”).
We have also paid particular attention to public awareness campaigns (“I”), which are recommended to be part of a comprehensive approach in tackling unhealthy diets in the Framework for Action to be discussed at ICN2.
We now have a total of 223 policy actions included in the database.
We hope you find this information useful to learn about some of the actions that can be taken to implement the primary commitment to be made at ICN2 – addressing malnutrition in all its forms, including overweight, obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases.
Do not hesitate to send us further actions or comments, and thank you for your interest in NOURISHING.
