Ultra-processed food consumption among the paediatric population: An overview and call to action from the European childhood obesity group./Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism

Goal

Describe the nutritional landscape and effect UPF has on childhood obesity.

Results

The European Childhood Obesity Group seeks to increase awareness among the European population of the high health, social, psychological and economic impacts of childhood obesity and, in evaluating the available scientific and clinical evidence on UPF, recognizes the importance of directly targeting the high consumption of UPF. The European Childhood Obesity Group calls for more conflict-of interest free research, the development of guidelines, and the dissemination of knowledge regarding the negative effects of UPF consumption among children and adolescents.
