The 5th annual Nutrition & Lifestyle Conference was held on 2-3 March in Brussels, with the Choices Programme as one of the sponsors. Top level speakers from industry, EU institutions and NGOs engaged in a lively and interactive discussion about various themes relating to obesity and nutrition in Europe, as well as important issues in terms of policy, including advertising, labeling, nutrient profiling and health claims. Ellis Vyth, researcher at the VU University Amsterdam, presented a study on the impact of the Choices stamp, concluding that it plays a vital role in promoting healthier product development.
