Give Kids a Break! What next for EU action to protect children from harmful food marketing?

28 June 2022

10:00 - 11:30 CEST

European Parliament - Hybrid

Children across Europe continue to be exposed to food marketing that harms their well-being and health. Overweight and obesity have reached epidemic levels in Europe, with no country on track to halt and reverse this trend.

 

In recent months, the European Parliament has twice called on the Commission to introduce comprehensive legislation to protect children from the marketing of processed foods high in fats, sugar and salt (see reports on Farm to Fork and Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan).

 

This debate will gather Members of European Parliament and other public interest stakeholders to reflect on next steps for EU action to protect children from harmful food marketing.
