24 December 2008

The National Preventative Health Taskforce invited submissions on its discussion paper ‘Australia: The Healthiest Country by 2020' and supporting Technical paper ‘Obesity: a need for urgent action'. These papers recommended a range of interventions aimed at halting and reversing the rise of obesity and overweight in Australia by 2020, including restrictions on unhealthy food advertising to children, improved food labelling requirements and a review of the taxation system to improve access to healthier foods/ discourage consumption of unhealthy foods.

The OPC's submission outlined its support for the proposed strategy to address overweight and obesity. It also recommended that:

  • Any coordinating body should be linked to the life of the strategy, implement outcomes, measures and targets and co-ordinate action and research
  • Realistic targets, including mediator targets, should be set
  • Food companies should be required to disclose financial and marketing information
  • Comprehensive restrictions should apply to all forms of marketing of unhealthy food to children under 16 years, and Nutrient Profiling should be used to determine whether a food is ‘unhealthy'.
  • Front of pack traffic light labelling should be introduced and nutrient profiling should be used to determine whether a product is unhealthy or not.
  • The public service should act as model environment for health.
