Written answers (Question to Health)

The Healthy Eating Guidelines were reviewed recently by a Working Group of my Department and HSE dietitians and published last June 2012. The Food Safety Authority of Ireland, the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute and the Special Action Group on Obesity, which I established in 2011, were also involved in the review.
