The Nutrition Action Plan (NAP.e) has been designed to bundle nutrition policy measures across Austria for the first time. It defines targets and documents as many measures as possible that will be taken to achieve the goals desired. Reductions in levels of poor nutrition, overeating and malnutrition, as well as a trend reversal in the number of overweight and obese people by 2020, are high priorities. Consistent measures will be undertaken and structures will be adapted and/or created to pave the way for better, ideally optimal, dietary behaviour. The healthier choice should also become the easier choice for all Austrians.
It will be important to get as many initiatives and activities started, bundled and coordinated, so that healthier choices will become the easier choices for everyone living in Austria. AGES is conducting the programme for early nutrition "Richtig essen von Anfang an!" and the initiative for school nutrition and cafeterias "Unser Schulbuffet", as part of the Austrian Nutrition Action Plan.
