Liebe Fachpolitikerinnen und -politiker! In der #Ernährungspolitik gibt es sehr viele, drängende Herausforderungen.
Als Grundlage für die Verhandlungen zur #Ampelkoalition deshalb hier eine kleine To-do-Liste (#ErnährungTop20, nicht nach Prioritäten geordnet):
1. Einordnung des Ressorts „Ernährung“ in das Gesundheitsministerium (statt in das Landwirtschaftsministerium)
2. beitragsfreie Kita- und Schulverpflegung; verpflichtende Qualitätsstandards für Kita- und Schulverpflegung; qualitätsgesicherte Ernährungsbildung in Schulen
