Our policy framework to promote healthy diets & reduce obesity
We developed the NOURISHING framework to highlight where governments need to take action to promote healthy diets and reduce overweight and obesity.
The framework brings together ten policy areas across three domains: food environment, food system and behavior change communication. The framework is accompanied by a regularly updated database (last updated 15th August 2016), providing an extensive overview of implemented government policy actions from around the world. It is a tool designed to help policymakers worldwide to:
identify where action is needed to promote healthy diets, reduce obesity and other non-communicable diseases, including cancer
select and tailor options suitable for different populations
assess if approach is sufficiently comprehensive
