The Lombardy Region

The Lombardy Region joined the FOOD programme in 2017 in the framework of a national programme called “Gaining Health” (“Guadagnare salute”; approved through a decree of the Prime Minister on 4 May 2007, in agreement with the Independent Regional and Provincial Governments: http://www.guadagnaresalute.it). Its main objective is to prevent and change unhealthy conducts (smoking, having an unhealthy diet, drinking alcohol and lacking of physical activity) that are alone responsible for 60% of the loss of years of healthy life in Europe and in Italy. The Lombardy Region included the FOOD programme within its initiatives dedicated to the promotion of healthy nutrition, especially as it offers to people living in the province the possibility to find healthy food offer thanks to the FOOD restaurants network.
