Creator:

Subject Keywords: Marketing of unhealthy foods to children
Topic: Obesity

Type: Report
Region: International (other)
Description:

This document calls for global action to reduce the impact on children of marketing of foods high in saturated fats, trans-fatty acids, free sugars, or salt. It is developed to facilitate the policy processes and mechanisms to reach this aim, as expressed in the two key documents contained in this publication: the set of recommendations on the marketing of foods and non-alcoholic beverages to children and the resolution endorsing the set of recommendations.
 
The document reflects the increased recognition over the past decade of the importance of addressing NCDs, most clearly expressed in the action plan for the global strategy for the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (2008-2013), endorsed by the Sixty-first World Health Assembly in May 2008 (resolution WHA61.14). The foundation for the action plan was laid with the endorsement of the global strategy’s political framework in May 2000, when the WHO Director-General was requested to continue giving priority to the prevention and control of NCDs (resolution WHA53.17). As requested by the Sixtieth World Health Assembly in May 2007 (resolution WHA60.23), the action plan for the global strategy was developed to translate the global strategy into concrete action.
