School Fruit, Vegetables and Milk Scheme

"Applicable since 1 August 2017, the EU school fruit, vegetables and milk scheme combines two previous schemes (the school fruit and vegetables scheme and the school milk scheme) under a single legal framework for more efficiency and an enhanced focus on health and educational. The scheme supports the distribution of products, educational measures and information measures. The scheme supports the distribution of fruit, vegetables, milk and certain milk products to schoolchildren, from nursery to secondary school. EU countries approve a list of products (in collaboration with their health and nutrition authorities) which will help achieve the schemes objective of helping children to follow a healthy diet. Priority is for fresh fruit and vegetables and for plain milk. In order to support a varied diet and/or specific nutritional needs, EU countries may also make processed fruit and vegetables such as juices and soups and certain milk products such as yoghurt and cheese, available. Additionally, under stricter conditions, milk-based drinks may be included." - EU Commission

Eat healthy, get more exercise (GIMB)

"n order to combat the growing problem of obesity and sedentary lifestyle (lack of physical activity) in the general population and among children and adolescents in particular, the national interministerial action plan "Gesond iessen, Méi beweegen" was launched in the Grand Duchy in 2006. Its main objective is the promotion of a balanced diet and regular physical activity. In terms of food, it is a question of improving the dietary practices of populations and ensuring healthy food products. In terms of physical activity, the objective is to reduce a sedentary lifestyle and strengthen the practices of physical activity favorable to health, and this at the individual and collective level. GIMB is an interministerial program between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Sports, the Ministry of National Education, Children and Youth and the Ministry of Family, Integration and the Greater Region, and thus makes it possible to act jointly to improve the health of the population. GIMB has therefore become an initiative, which sees the birth of multiple projects across the country, both nationally and locally, in schools, municipalities or businesses."

EU health and nutrient claims regulation

Regulation nº 1924/2006 establishes EU-wide rules on the use of specified health and nutrient claims. The European Commission approves claims provided they are based on scientific evidence and accessible consumers. The European Food Safety Authority is responsible for evaluating the scientific evidence supporting health claims. Nutrition claims may only be used on food defined as "healthy" by a nutrient profile.
