Assessing the existing evidence base on school food and nutrition policies: a scoping review
This report by the World Health Organization presents the results of a scoping review conducted in 2019 to identify and map existing evidence on the effects of school food and nutrition policies on health-related outcomes in children of school age. School-based food and nutrition interventions were assessed in terms of the impacts in all four key policy areas, namely – the school community, the school curriculum, the school food and nutrition environment, and school nutrition and health services.
