Nutrient data

Once you've entered a product's category and sub-category, the form will update to indicate which fileds are required for that product.

Aim to include all information. This enables the NPPM to assess products across all revelant components.

You'll find the information you need in the nutritional panel and ingredients list.

There is information missing in my product label

Not all labels will contain all the information needed to assess each component of the NPPM.

Knowing that information is missing is useful information in itself. It helps us to identify areas where companies need to be more transparent with consumers.

If you don't have enough information to assess a component, just leave it blank. It will mean you won’t be able to assess the product on that component, and the tool will flag this to you. But, as there’s no overall NPPM score, missing information for one component won’t stop you assessing other components of the model.

The NPPM is a Nutrient and Promotion Profile Model by WHO and University of Leeds, designed to assess the appropriateness of commercial baby foods.
