Public health response to ultra-processed food and drinks
Explore the implications for public health action of the growing evidence confirming a link between consumption of ultra-processed food and drinks and non-communicable diseases.
1) Ultra-processed food and drinks are products that are formulated from ingredients resulting from industrial processes. 2) Growing evidence associates greater consumption of ultra-processed foods with increased risk of non-communicable diseases._3) Public health efforts should focus on wider determinants of consumption rather than selected nutrients or individual behaviours. 4 Structural interventions are required to increase access to convenient, palatable, and affordable minimally processed foods and dishes. 5)_Reducing consumption will require simultaneous changes to supply and demand at local, national, and transnational levels
