Nutrition policy and the future of cancer research

Nutrition policies around the world

NOURISHING is our database of implemented nutrition policies from all over the world that promote healthy diets to reduce overweight and obesity. The database is regularly updated and, at the start of December, a number of policies and policy evaluations were added. These include marketing regulations, sugar-sweetened beverage taxes and bans on advertising junk food on public transport.

Added polices are from the UK, Peru, Malaysia, the Seychelles, the Netherlands, Slovenia and the US.
