Supporting Healthy Choices: A Framework for Voluntary Action

Supporting Healthy Choices: A Framework for Voluntary Action

This framework sets out the action we believe is necessary to shape and better support healthier diets in Scotland.

Executive Summary

On 26th June 2014, following lengthy consultation with stakeholders, the Scottish Government launched the Supporting Healthy Choices voluntary framework. This framework sets out the action we believe is necessary to shape and better support healthier diets in Scotland.

Developed jointly by the Scottish Government and Food Standards Agency in Scotland, this framework invites the food and drink industry and other partners to take specific voluntary action to create a healthier food environment for consumers; one which readily encourages healthier choices and better supports sustained health behaviour change. The food and drink industry is particularly well placed to influence the choices consumers make and this is reflected in this framework.
