British Nutrition Foundation

EDM number 168 in 2005-06, proposed by David Taylor on 23/05/2005.

That this House is concerned by the role of the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) in advising the Government on the food nutrition content of the national curriculum and health matters; acknowledges that the Government contributes to its funds but notes that the BNF is a predominantly industry-supported charity whose members include McDonalds, Coca Cola, Northern Foods, Nutrasweet, Kraft, Cadbury-Schweppes, Kelloggs, Nestlé, Sainsbury, Asda and Procter and calls on the Government to clarify the BNF's relationship with the Food Standards Agency and its role in advising the Department for Education and Skills and the Department of Health on matters such as nutrition classes in school and the course content of qualifications for school caterers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
