European Commission

The European Commission (EC) has a European policy for the 25 European Union countries, in the field of nutrition and physical activity, with the most relevant documents being “A Strategy for Europe on Nutrition, Overweight and Obesity related health issues” and “EU Action Plan on Childhood Obesity 2014-2020 “.

In order to accomplish this European policy on food and nutrition, the EC has created the High Level Group on Nutrition and Physical Activity which is composed of representatives of governments of all Member States and coordinated by the EC.

When developing PNPAS, the guidelines proposed by the European policy in the field of nutrition and physical activity were also taken into account.
