World Obesity Day 2022
Call to protect children from the marketing of nutritionally poor food: Time for an effective regulatory framework.
On this World Obesity Day, social and health organisations call on the EU to adopt strong regulation to protect children from the marketing of nutritionally poor food. Obesity is on the rise among European citizens, leading to decreases in the quality of life and the life expectancy of the individual and increases in diet-related non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and in societal and economic costs. To prevent a further rise of obesity and major diet-related diseases (NCDs) in the future, strong EU regulation on food marketing and support to families and children must be developed as a matter of priority.
