EHN research on Nutrient Profile Model
March 28th 2013
On 28 March, the European Heart Network published a report on "Reducing children's exposure to marketing of foods and drinks that are high in fat, salt or sugar.
This report summarises recent developments in relation to the marketing of unhealthy foods to children, which form the background to a commitment that the European Heart Network (EHN) submitted to the European Platform for action on diet, physical activity and health in 2012. It also describes that commitment and progress made towards achieving its objective.
The objective of the commitment was to carry out an investigation with a view to assessing the potential for cross-sector agreement on nutritional criteria for foods and drinks marketed and advertised to children that can be applied across Europe.
