|MANILA， Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- The World Health Organization for the Western Pacific launched on Monday a new tool to protect children from unhealthy food and drink that cause obesity and other serious health problems.
The tool， called the regional profile model， will help governments and policy-makers to more easily identify food and non-alcoholic beverages that should not be marketed to children.
"Nutrient profiles rank foods by their nutritional composition，" the WHO said in a statement.
"As such， they are critical tools for the implementation of restrictions on the marketing of food and beverages to children."
Across the Western Pacific Region， the WHO said marketers of unhealthy food and beverages target children. These food and beverages are high in calories， saturated and trans fats， salt and sugar， the consumption of which are driving exploding rates f obesity and other health problems in many countries across the region.
"Children are constantly bombarded with clever marketing campaigns that use advertising， promotion and sponsorship techniques pioneered by the tobacco and alcohol industries，" said Shin Young-soo， WHO regional director for the Western Pacific.
He said marketing plays a major role in shaping the children's diet， preferences and consumption patterns.
"Imbedded early on， these effects last a lifetime， so we must protect our children's health from these harmful influences，" Shin said.
WHO said evidence shows a link between the exposure to marketing and unhealthy dietary behaviors.
"Unhealthy diets are a key risk factor for noncommunicable diseases in children， including obesity and tooth decay，" the organization said.
Despite this evidence， the WHO said children remain inadequately protected from harmful marketing practices including television， print and billboard advertising， internet， promotion and sponsorship of school and sports events.
The WHO said childhood obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases are a complex public health problem among children and adolescents across the Western Pacific region.
In several countries， the WHO said overweight affects up to 15 percent of children under age five and almost 60 percent of adolescents in some Pacific islands countries.
"Dental caries also affect between 60 to 95 percent of children under five in some countries. Growing rates of overweight and obesity are also linked to a rise in non-communicable diseases， such as diabetes， cardiovascular disease and cancer，" the WHO said.
Despite the region's growing noncommunicable diseases crises， the WHO said governments struggle to implement policies to reduce the intake of unhealthy foods and non-alcoholic beverages.
"Restrictions on marketing are part of a comprehensive set of policy options to reduce consumption of unhealthy foods and address diet-related noncommunicable diseases. These are also part of the time-bound commitments that member states made to combat these diseases，" the WHO said.
It also stressed the need include front and back of packed food labeling and the restrictions on unhealthy foods and beverages sold in schools.
Text Messaging Overview
I don’t want to get too technical Cheap Jose Bautista Jersey , but here’s what you need to know about the basics, that’s it.
Keyword – Is the word you associate your company with such as BRIDES (used to capture leads at a Bridal Expo) or HOOTKNOX (used for Hooters in Knoxville) or Xyng1 (used for a national weight loss and energy company)- just to name a few.
Short Code– This is the number you are texting to just like a phone number. This could be the most complicated part- So let’s take a look at a few of them: 74620 or 129721. Try remembering that when you are driving by a restaurant or a car lot? That’s why we are going to key in the most famous numbers out there- 90210 – Do you think your customers will have a hard time remembering that number? Maybe 2 or 3% of the population Cheap Kevin Pillar Jersey , not a bad way to brand your company after such a remarkable short code.
Here’s how it works
Business A: set’s up a text Campaign spreading the news around their store with signs and the entire staff announcing this:
Lose Weight and Gain Energy Today
Text Xyng1 to 90210
couple things happen at this point. When they text in, they get an auto reply back stating information about your product or a Special that you are announcing for the day. So the client gets a discount or special and they are happy Cheap Marcus Stroman Jersey , plus they start talking about something that’s awesome that just happened to their friends. The second things that happens is that the business owner captures the customers phone number, with their permission Cheap Troy Tulowitzki Jersey , and now you can give out another special to drive that client back.
1. The client gets a discount or special
2. The business owner gets a phone number to their list. They now have the permission from that customer to give them another special or discount at a later time and date.
Let’s take another example here: A restaurant has approx 50 people a day come in and eat at their business. They put out a message like an Appetizer, a Desert Cheap Joe Carter Jersey , or a Soda are included with their meal when they Text FOOD to 90210. The owner spreads the word, the staff gets involved and the clients are gaining a discount or special so they text in at a 80+% rate.
Here’s the Break down on the Numbers
The restaurant serves 50 groups of customers per day and they are open 6 days a week = 300 people a week at a 80% text in rate = 240 phone numbers per week
After 1 month = Approx 1 Cheap Roberto Alomar Jersey ,000 phone numbers the business has acquired and could market to; and one year can bring in almost 10,000+ numbers.
