Bread Oriented Stuff (but not entirely)
And so, if my wife was to ask me what I had been doing all morning, I could truthfully have said that I had been “busy harnessing ecosystem services and investing sweat equity”, and she would have probably thought that I had become a little bit madder than I already am.
We did 70 interviews in 14 countries across Europe. The interviews enabled more up-to-date and accurate information than was provided on websites or in reports. Responses revealed important differences between official lists of food policies and their actual implementation on the ground. European countries are at very different stages of addressing public health nutrition issues. Most are promoting dialogue, recommendations, and guidelines (often regarded as an early part of the policy process). Voluntary reformulation of foods is also common, especially for salt, sugar, and total fat. Legislation, regulation, or fiscal interventions targeting salt, sugar, fat, or fruit and vegetable consumption are still uncommon. Many interviewees expressed a preference for regulation and fiscal interventions and generally believed that they were more effective than voluntary measures and information-based interventions, albeit politically more challenging. Conversely, information-based interventions were often seen as being more politically feasible than regulation and fiscal measures.
