Event: Give Kids a Break! What next for EU action to protect children from harmful food marketing?
Children across Europe continue to be exposed to food marketing that harms their well-being and health. Overweight and obesity have reached epidemic levels in Europe, with no country on track to halt and reverse this trend.
In recent months, the European Parliament has twice called on the Commission to introduce comprehensive legislation to protect children from the marketing of processed foods high in fats, sugar and salt (see reports on Farm to Fork and Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan).
This debate will gather Members of European Parliament to reflect on next steps for EU action to protect children from harmful food marketing.
Format: European Parliament, Room: A501. The event will also be available ONLINE as places at the Parliament are subject to availability
Timing: 28/06/2022, 10-11:30h CEST
