BNF Consultation responses

The Foundation responds to consultations of major public health importance on a range of food- and nutrition-related topics, as diverse as proposed changes in the school curriculum and new food policy initiatives.  Our principle focus is the underlying nutrition science and associated public health benefits, and we are keen to make our feedback practical and feasible using our expertise in nutrition and education. But we also endeavor to place our comments in the context of the implications for stakeholders such as health professionals, consumers, educators, policy makers and those who manufacture or sell foods.
