Do you want to maintain a healthy weight and help reduce your risk of becoming ill from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and other chronic diseases?
The main aim of this paper is to derive indications that may contribute to better strategic and tactical marketing decisions. This study will add a contribution that helps both the firms and the policy maker to be aware of the current situation of healthy foods demand and to forecast the future for these markets.
Not all foods are covered by the standards for food out with the school lunch. However, it is essential that careful consideration is given to all foods provided to ensure the choices support the ethos of the health promoting school, putting the health of children and young people at the center of every decision.
The Standards for Food Outwith the School Lunch and the Drink Standards (section 4) have been set to complement the work already undertaken by school catering providers and signal a clear and consistent message to pupils about what sort of foods and drinks they should eat throughout the school day.
Why is this standard important? Most children and young people consume more salt than they need, which could have an effect on their health in the future. Eating too much salt increases the risk of high blood pressure, which may then lead to heart disease and stroke.
