Childhood obesity: A growing challenge (The STOP project)

Over 4.5 years (2018-22), the STOP project has generated scientifically sound, novel and policy-relevant evidence on the factors that have contributed to the spread of childhood obesity in European countries and on the effects of alternative technological and organisational solutions and policy options available to address childhood obesity.

The project brought together major actors in the health and food sectors, including scientists, healthcare professionals, government policy makers, national public health agencies, international organisations, civil society and business organisations.

The project has translated the evidence gathered to generate:
– Indicators and measurements
– Policy briefs and toolkits
– Multi-stakeholder framework
