GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS FOR SUPPORTING AND PROTECTING YOUNG CONSUMERS – INSTRUMENTS OF FOOD POLICY IN ROMANIA

Corina Ene

Economics of Agriculture, 2014, vol. 61, issue 2, 15

Abstract: In recent years, a number of preoccupations at the global, regional and national level have been aimed to find solutions to the current problems in the field of food consumption in children and young people, given the fact that both food insufficiency and food abuse generate negative effects on health. In Romania, the economic context consisting of the existence of a large number of children whose diet is insufficient made European programs for granting food in schools, during class hours, to be useful and to have social relevance. The article examines, starting from the Romanian legislative framework underpinning such programs, the coordinates of these efforts, concluding that they represent in the same time instruments of national food policy.
