1. Promoting Healthier Diets: Is Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labelling Part of the Solution

Globally, obesity and diet-related diseases are a growing public health issue. A major risk factor is unhealthy diets due to the increasing availability of pre-packaged foods.

By incorporating the scheme presented within the Global Charter for the Public's Health, the WFPHA is organizing an international webinar to explore Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labels as a strategy to prevent diet-related disease and promote healthier eating habits.

In order to establish front-of-package labelling as an effective strategy for NCD prevention and improving the public's well-being, the Webinar will include the following objectives:

  • Facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration
  • Engage professionals from different fields
  • Provide new, innovative & applicable ideas
  • Enhance relationship building
  • Develop community health systems
  • Create guidelines to combat unhealthy diets and NCDs

To allow for global participation, the International Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labels Webinar 2018 will be held on two dates: October 16 (11am CEST) & October 18 (9pm CEST)
