Researchers tackle Poland's obesity problem by analyzing weaknesses in the country's nutrition policy

Poland is facing the scourge of overweight and obesity. According to estimates, in 2025, 26% of Polish women and 30% of Polish men will struggle with this problem. A research team including Professor Aleksandra Łuszczyńska from SWPS University's Institute of Psychology, analyzed and diagnosed the current food environment in Poland, its weak points, and most pressing needs compared to other countries. The results are not encouraging.

What we researched and why:

  • The study aimed to analyze the healthy eating policy in Poland and identify infrastructure gaps in order to establish and implement an improvement policy.

How we did it:

  • The researchers used the Healthy Food Environment Policy Index (Food-EPI) to compare Polish policies and infrastructure with international best practices. Moreover, they developed a list of suggested improvements in these areas.

Research conclusions:

  • The Polish healthy food environment has been assessed as very weak or weak in most aspects. The researchers determined numerous improvement actions and prioritized the implementation of a simple food labeling system and the development of a training program for school nutrition employees.
