Updated version of WCRF’s policy framework to promote healthy diets & reduce obesity

The World Cancer Research Fund International has created the NOURISHING policy database which has now been updated and holds 390 policy actions from 125 countries, and 70 evaluations.

Included in the current update are 36 new and 12 updated policies including three very recent policy actions which have come into effect beginning of 2017: Philadelphia’s sugary drinks tax, France’s ban of free soda refills and Ontario’s calorie labelling on menus in chain restaurants (Healthy Menu Choices Act).  Process and impact evaluations are continuously being to the database, and 39 evaluations are included with this update.
