PEN EU Food-EPI report

How can EU-level policies be improved to create healthier food environments in the EU?

Overweight, obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases are major public health challenges in the European Union (EU), caused by changes in dietary and physical activity patterns. Current food environments (e.g. easy availability of energy-dense, fat- and sugar-rich, and ultra-processed foods) are an important factor contributing to this public health problem. Governmental policies have the potential to improve these food environments, making a healthy choice easier.

The PEN work package on Estimation and simulation of policy impact (WP3) organizes a webinar on:

Approaches to the evaluation of nutrition policies: state of the art, challenges and new directions

Final report on Food-EPI: The Netherlands

How can national government policies be improved to create a healthier food environment in the Netherlands?

Overweight, obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases have risen dramatically in the past decennia, caused by changes in dietary and physical activity patterns. The current food environment (e.g. easy availability of energy-dense, fat- and sugar-rich, and ultra-processed foods) is one of the key factors contributing to this public health problem. Government policies have the potential to improve these food environments, making a healthy choice easier.
