National Healthy Food and Drink Policy – 2nd edition September 2019

The National DHB Food and Drink Environments Network (the Network) was established in 2015 to develop a consistent National Healthy Food and Drink Policy (the Policy) for use across all New Zealand District Health Boards (DHBs), and potentially other settings. The Network received support and advice from the Heart Foundation, Activity and Nutrition Aotearoa, the Ministry for Primary Industries, the New Zealand Beverage Guidance Panel and the University of Auckland in the development of the Policy.

This 2nd edition differs from the original edition published in September 2016. Following a limited review of key issues identified by Network members, small changes have been made to the criteria to make the Policy more practical to implement
