Creating a better future – child nutrition
Adequate nutrition during pregnancy, infancy and early childhood is fundamental for child development; to be resistant to disease, to grow properly, to do well at school. The importance of a balanced diet and lifestyle for children to reach their full potential has been well recognised. Yet, effects of poor nutrition at young age are more and more understood to have lifelong implications. Promotion of exclusive breastfeeding from 0-6 months and continued breastfeeding with appropriate complementary feeding for up to 2 years is probably one of the most cost-effective nutrition habits to be endorsed. So to promote a healthy future during adult life, programmes to enjoy healthy eating as well as physical play need to commence as early as possible in life.

Perspective: total, added, or free? What kind of sugars should we be talking about?
There is consistent public guidance to limit sugars intakes. However, WHO recommendations are for “free” sugars, whereas some other guidance documents and public discussion focus on “added” sugars, and globally most food labeling states “total” sugars. Total sugars comprise all mono and disaccharides, regardless of source, whereas both added and free sugars exclude the sugars that naturally occur in dairy products and intact fruit and vegetables.
