  1. 1. INTEGRATING SCHOOL MEALS AND NUTRITION EDUCATION IN HIGH INCOME COUNTRY SETTING Dr. Klaus Heider Director-General for „Food Policy, Product Safety and Innovation“
  2. 2. Key factors of our health promoting food policy: • Dietary education schemes which pursue an integral approach and are fun for children (“nutrition license”) • Quality standards for school catering that have been devised on a scientific basis and are continuously being updated and further developed
  3. 3. Key factors of our health promoting food policy: • Networking centres and a National Quality Centre for Nutrition in Preschools and Schools. They ensure that the quality standards are applied on a broad basis in day-care centres for children and schools. • A National Research Institute of Child Nutrition. It helps us to become better and better and take our policy decisions on a scientific basis.
  4. 4. Dietary education that pursues an integral approach and is fun and quality-focused school catering are two sides of the same coin that we aim to address with our health- promoting food policy in Germany which is based on scientific findings.
