In the light of the relationship between health and nutrition, this paper focuses on the policy strategy designed by the European institutions with regard to nutrition.

The framework thus conceived – though noteworthy and commendable for several reasons – turns out to be problematic in achieving the desired goals: health protection and citizens’ well-being.

Abstract

In the light of the relationship between health and nutrition, this paper focuses on the policy strategy designed by the European institutions with regard to nutrition. Starting from the analysis of theWorld Declaration for Nutrition adopted by FAO and WHO in 1992, the main European regulatory measures adopted on the issue are analysed and some reflections are offered about their normative status (hard and soft law), as well as on some problematic aspects and implications. Moreover, the contribution focuses on two major European strategies in regulating nutrition, namely the health-in-all-policies and whole-of-government approaches, characterized by the combination of heterogeneous legal instruments together with the coexistence of actions undertaken by public and private actors. The framework thus conceived – though noteworthy and commendable for several reasons – turns out to be problematic in achieving the desired goals: health protection and citizens’ well-being.
