Policy Initiatives Concerning Diet, Health and Nutrition


  • Linda Fulponi



The main findings of the paper are based on the OECD survey of policy initiatives in diet, health and nutrition and a review of the relevant literature. Overall survey responses indicate that most efforts focus on two main types of activities: first, increasing information on diet and health to consumers to enable them to make informed food choices and, second, promoting increased consumption of fruit and vegetables, particularly amongst children. The survey results provide information on policy experiences and programmes in OECD countries.
