Action framework for developing and implementing public food procurement and service policies for a healthy diet

This action framework provides an overview of how to develop (or strengthen), implement, assess compliance with, and evaluate, the effectiveness of a healthy public food procurement and service policy. This framework aims to increase the availability of healthy food through setting nutrition criteria for food served and sold in public settings. It also aims to reduce preventable diseases and deaths from high consumption of sodium and salt, sugars and fats, particularly trans fats, and inadequate consumption of whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruit.
