Belgian National Food and Health Plan (PNNS)
The PNNS is a multidisciplinary project that aims to enhance better eating habits and increase physical activity in the general population. It allows all actors to participate in taskforces according to subject: consumer organisations, the food industry, the distribution sector, universities, etc. This results in an exciting mix of actions ranging from communication and information to improving the food offer, conducting vital research and offering tools to health professionals to tackle these issues. These actions encompass a wide range of subjects such as: salt reduction, breastfeeding, malnutrition in the elderly, promoting fruit and vegetable consumption amongst others.
