Description:
There is a need to revise Ireland’s ‘healthy eating guidelines’ as one of the key measures to halt rising rates of obesity and prevent chronic disease. This report outlines: • The evaluation of Ireland’s ‘food pyramid’, 1993-2010 • The approaches taken to develop revised ‘healthy eating guidelines’ for Ireland • Research carried out on serving sizes • A summary of work carried out on the affordability of healthy eating and its’ implications • Recommendations for further work to complete and implement the revised ‘healthy eating guidelines’ for Ireland, 2010 • Recommendations for further necessary work to address the needs of other age groups, i.e. pre-school children and older people. • The revised healthy eating advice for different age and gender groups over the age of 5 years in Ireland. This is outlined in two versions: a) Specific and detailed ‘healthy eating guidelines’ aimed at professional groups who are giving the advice and b) A more general version of these ‘healthy eating guidelines’ for consumers
