During the project phase (2009-2011), the consortium took several actions before the creation of the tools and the launch of communication campaigns to understand what has been done so far in this area and to determine the needs of both target groups, employees and restaurants.
A detailed inventory of existing programmes related to nutritional interventions was first conducted. This review of existing programmes was carried out in order to understand the initiatives already carried on in the various countries regarding interventions to promote healthy eating through a work setting. The core of the review was on initiatives targeting balanced food in restaurants and those targeting employees in a company setting.
70 programmes matched the review criteria and were integrated into the study.
