School nutrition standards for safeguarding children’s right to food

Brief me

The project aims to improve children’s diets, through the adoption of nutrition guidelines and standards within national school food programmes and policies, and through the promotion of effective food education strategies and complementary food environment interventions in school systems. The project is also focused on integrating such standards and complementary measures into national legal frameworks and promoting social control mechanisms, in order to support the right to food of schoolchildren and adolescents.
