To mark the fourth anniversary of the EU Platform for Action on Diet, Physical Activity & Health, Robert Madelin, Director General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO) of the European Commission speaks to EUFIC about the maturation of this multi-stakeholder platform, the power of co-operative voluntarism, with accelerated outputs to address nutrition and health issues in Europe.

The EU-funded project EATWELL has been initiated in response to the many policy interventions that have been launched in Europe addressing unhealthy diets - the promotion of fruit and vegetable consumption, nutrition labelling, regulation of school meals and public sector canteens, have they been shown to be effective? If not, how can that be improved? EATWELL is tasked with finding these answers. In a podcast interview with EUFIC, EATWELL’s coordinator, Professor Bruce Traill, outlines the key aims and objectives of this important research programme.

An international expert meeting, focusing on the "Health significance of fat quality of the diet", took place in Barcelona on 1st and 2nd February 2009.

During the 11th European Nutrition Conference, organised by the Federation of European Nutrition Societies (FENS), which took place from the 26-29 October 2011 in Madrid, a couple of symposia addressed the topic of hydration. Appropriate hydration of the body is a requirement for health and is essential for life itself. Water sustains the body’s many vital chemical reactions and maintains correct body functions. However, the important issue of hydration is often neglected, as nutrition advice predominantly focuses on food intake.
In this podcast interview, EUFIC spoke with Professor Ron Maughan and Dr. Patrícia Padrão, both experts who participated in the symposium "Hydration: A Basic Aspect in Nutrition". The podcast will explore the hydration status in different populations and how it influences health.
