(p.229) Chapter 20 Towards a children’s food and nutrition policy
Childhood Obesity Prevention

Anthony Worsley

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines several themes which relate to the development of children's food and nutrition policies. Although many of the examples described focus on Australian settings, the themes explored can be applied to settings and sectors in many countries. The chapter briefly reviews children's food and nutrition issues, poses the need for government or community led policies, proposes a food policy knowledge management process, provides some examples of the sorts of information that can be garnered from population monitoring, and ends with an attempt to flesh out some of the elements of a children's food and nutrition policy.
