WEBINAR: The healthy choice logo to prevent overweight and non-communicable diseases

 21 July 2020. 10:00-11:00 am CEST. Choice Webinar

recording forthcoming

Thirteen years ago, Choices International started as a foundation to promote a healthy choice logo to
help prevent overweight and non-communicable diseases. While this has remained unchanged, over the years, it became clear that much more is needed. Stand-alone nutrition interventions gave way to a food systems approach, in which different policies are aligned to generate optimal impact. 

From FOP labelling to taxation, from school feeding to policy evaluation. Choices has acknowledged this development and has been working for the last year on how to adopt this approach. The result is a new comprehensive Choices strategy to enlarge its impact by working in a different way.
  • Rokiah Don, together with Clémence Ross, discussed the changing picture of nutrition in the world and the shifts that our organization has made. 
  • Gerda Verburg responded to that from the viewpoint of the SUN Movement.
  • Clemence Ross unveiled the new Choices logo.
During the webinar, young African nutrition scientists voiced their ambition to improve nutrition in the continent, together with Choices.
