Policy options to prevent child obesity
October 19th 2006
During the last phase of the project on Children and obesity (from December 2005 to October 2006) a Europe-wide stakeholder consultation on policy options to prevent child obesity took place with a view to achieving consensus on a small number (five) of policy options to be achieved as priorities within the participating European countries as well as at a European level.
This report establishes the fact that the awareness of the problems is high and that various national and international measures are being proposed. It discusses the options available, tools for selecting policy options, international and national approaches as well as the results of the Europe-wide stakeholder consultations’ assessment of policy options carried out in the framework of the CHOB project.
