Policy Recommendations Urge a Global Convention to Fight Obesity

Policy recommendations released by World Obesity (formerly “IASO”) and Consumers International on May 19th call on the international community to develop a global convention to fight “diet-related ill health” similar to the legal framework for tobacco control. The set of recommendations to governments includes placing stricter controls on advertising, promotion and sponsorship of “unhealthy” foods to children under the age of 16.

The joint report entitled: “Recommendations towards a Global Convention to protect and promote healthy diets'” defines unhealthy food as: “a specific food or beverage which is recommended for reduced consumption based on national or regional, government-appointed food-based dietary guidelines or which is identified as 'unhealthy' according to a government-approved nutrient profiling model."
