Ukraine basing nutrition plan on EU platform

Related tags: Nutrition

The Ukraine government is assessing a draft resolution to improve the country’s nutrition based on EU actions.

The Ukrainian Health Ministry of Health posted that the draft resolution seeks to approve “a national action plan to implement the Health 2020 European policy for health and well-being” ​in accord with its own ‘​Ukraine 2020 Sustained Development Strategy’.

Areas of concern include:

  • reducing shortages of certain vitamins (folic acid, vitamin D, etc.) and minerals (calcium, iodine, iron, etc.) in different groups of the population
  • regulation of the content of saturated fats in foods
  • elimination of saturated fats from foods and their replacement with non-saturated fats
  • amending food labels to notify consumers about the precise content of salt, sugar and saturated fats and their correlation with recommended consumption doses
  • restricting advertisement of foods containing excessive amounts of salt, sugar and saturated fats.

The nutrition plan is intended to be implemented between 2015-2017, according to the IADSA (International Alliance of Dietary Supplement Associations)
