This document is an adapted version of the National Healthy Food and Drink Policy. Instead of being targeted at the District Health Boards, this policy is targeted at any organisation that wishes to get support in the promotion and delivery of healthy food and drink. As such, it is a useful resource for tertiary institutions to access. To view this document, click here.

This policy is still highly informative for use in tertiary settings. For the full resource, see the link here.

The remaining two thirds of papers were focused on alcohol, tobacco or other drugs; we have included a short summary of these papers in the ‘Discussion’ section."
