Targeting Healthy Food through Regulation

When it comes to maintaining public health through food, food and health regulatory of Pakistan are often seen banning food items, products, and restaurants. Although restricting these things may be necessary for better food and health regulation, the approach should be more positive. Instead of simply banning and restricting stuff, food and health regulatory should also ensure that there are laws, which promote and make sure that food products have healthy targets.

Instead of banning food companies eventually when they are risking public health, health ministers should rather enforce food companies to make their products healthier with the use of target amount of salt, fat and sugar they contain. This target amount can be set through the international standard of food nutrients.

Marketing and campaigning of food and restaurants play an integral role in the regulation of food health for people. Likewise, all the food advertisements that come on television on radio readily effect people towards their attraction. Unfortunately, in our country, there are more junk food advertisements than healthy food. In order to promote good health in people, junk food advertisements should be controlled and there should be more marketing options available for the healthy food stuff.

When it comes to junk food marketing, it majorly targets young children. This has a very negative effect on the diet of children as they consume more junk food, which fills them inappropriately. As a result, they do not consume healthy food and become obese and ill instead.
