Wednesday, June 21, 2017   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, nutrition, physical activity, transport, healthy food, children, cycling, urban design, walking

In the news this week... new reports on how we eat and active play guidelines for under-fives, having your say on for the Health Star rating, cycling infrastructure and the NZ walking summit.

New Ministry of Health Reports

Ministry of Health."How We Eat" is a review of the available evidence on the effect of selected eating behaviours on diet and body size.

The topics reviewed are: breastfeeding, parental feeding practices and parenting style, adult role modelling, responsive eating, mealtimes and food literacy.

"Sit Less, Move More, Sleep Well: Active play guidelines for under-fives" has been prepared as part of the Eating and Activity Guidelines series.

From birth to five years of age, children experience a significant amount of physical, cognitive and socio-emotional development. Movement, through play, encourages this development. Play is an important way for a child to grow physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually, all of which are vital for their future health and wellbeing.

The Health Star Rating Advisory Committee (HSRAC) is undertaking a five year review of the Health Star Rating (HSR) system. The HSR system is a front-of-pack labelling (FoPL) scheme intended to assist consumers in making healthier diet choices.

The findings of the review will be provided to the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation (Forum) in mid‑2019.

Consultation closes on Thursday 20th July 2017.
