How Committed are Food Companies to Health?

A new study ranks the nutrition commitments of 25 of New Zealand’s largest food companies.

Professor Boyd Swinburn supervised the study, and said that many companies had committed to comply with the Advertising Standards Authority’s Children and Young People’s Advertising Code but stronger action is needed to protect children from marketing of unhealthy food.

PhD Scholarship: Population Health Public Policy

Three Marsden funded study opportunities are now available - one post-doctoral and two PhD scholarships.

The research will be looking into the commercial determinants of health with a focus on alcohol, tobacco, gambling and food industries. A particula focus will be looking into the relationship-building activities that occur between industry actors and political or government actors.

Dietary Counselling: How effective and cost-effective is it?

This Public Health Expert blog article discusses the literature on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of dietary counselling as a health intervention.

"Addressing the obesogenic environment [as opposed to dietary counselling] will have potentially (much) larger gains, and due to substantial reductions in obesity-related disease it is likely to be cost-saving."

Targeted Outdoor Activity Fund: Round 2

The New Zealand Recreation Association has a fund for targeted outdoor activity.

The purpose of the Targeted Outdoor Activity Fund is to promote the engagement of under-represented populations in outdoor activity.
