National Programme for the Promotion of Healthy Eating (PNPAS)

The National Programme for the Promotion of Healthy Eating (PNPAS), a Directorate-General of Health’s priority programme, aims to improve the nutritional status of the population, encourage the physical and economic availability of foods which constitute a healthy eating pattern, and create the conditions for the population to value, enjoy and eat them, integrating them into their daily routines. The strategy should allow the provision of foods which promote health and well-being for the entire population, be able to create citizens capable of making informed decisions about healthy foods and cooking practices, encourage the production of foods that are healthy and at the same time are able to boost employment, create balanced spatial planning and local economies, encourage local consumption and production methods that reduce impacts on the environment, reduce inequalities in the demand and access to foods that constitute a healthy eating pattern, and improve the qualification of those professionals that can influence the food consumption of the population.
