Policy Actions to Support Enhanced Consumer Behaviour for High-Quality Diets

How can the public and private sector work together to improve nutrition? This Global Panel policy brief provides evidence-based recommendations for food system actors to enhance consumer behavior, which can lead to better nutrition outcomes. By focusing on demand-side policies that influence behavior change, particularly consumer education, the brief lays out what governments can do to enable the transition to healthier, high-quality diets in a wide range of settings. The brief recommends that policymakers consider establishing national standards for healthy, high-quality diets, educating consumers about healthier dietary choices, and improving access to higher-quality diets for low-income consumers.
