 Nutrition Plan...

Nordic experience indicates that we all need to work together to provide an overall public health policy. To that end improvements in diet (partucularly increasing fruit & vegetables) can be made with dramatic improvments in coronary diseases within 20 years. in the Nordic countries, the government health agencies worked with the farm and food industry to alter the food supply and educate people.

As nutrition is not controlled by legislation, and a relatively low priority is given (e.g Food Standards Agency allocates only about 10% to diet and nutrition), there is a lot of scope for your organisation to provide the structure and support to provide healthier food.
