The new policies and policy evaluations added include:

  • Transport for London’s ban on junk food ads
  • The SSB tax in Seychelles
  • Front-of-pack warning labels on foods high in sodium, sugar, saturated- and trans-fats in Peru
  • Amsterdam’s ban on junk food promotion to children and teenagers in metro stations
  • An evaluation of Catalonia’s SSB tax
  • The five year review of Australia’s Health Star Rating on food.

This takes the NOURISHING database to well over 500 policies.

Children's Food Campaign: Better food and food teaching for children in schools, and protection of children from junk food marketing are the aims of Sustain's high-profile Children's Food Campaign. We also want clear food labelling that can be understood by everyone, including children.
