EU Health Ministers discuss the EU contribution to healthy nutrition for children during informal meeting

On 23 April, the European Ministers of Health gathered in Sofia for an informal meeting under the auspices of the Bulgarian presidency of the EU and in presence of Vytenis Andriukaitis, the European Commissioner for Health & Food Safety. After the meeting, the Bulgarian presidency published a press release summarising the key elements from the discussions and reiterating the will of the Council to publish conclusions on healthy nutrition for children in June 2018.

UNESDA supports the objectives of the presidency to take action to reduce childhood obesity: since 2006, we committed not to advertise any of our products to children and not to sell any of them in primary schools. In September 2017, we reinforced this commitment by pledging to remove all sugary drinks from secondary schools in Europe by the end of 2018.
