Authorised children’s development and health claims in the EU

J. Harland,    Harland Hall Associates, UK

Abstract:

There are currently 11 authorised Article 14.1(b) claims relating to children’s health, all of which relate to well-established nutrient functions. The majority of the claims relate to docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) or the nutrients essential for bone growth and development: calcium, vitamin D, phosphorus and protein. In all cases, at least a source of the nutrient must be present when making a claim. Scientific substantiation used to support these claims has been reviewed. Claims are being carried on a few products and, although the use of calcium and vitamin D claims has increased, their use is still at a low level.
