On November 12, 2018, at 04:00 pm CET (Central European Time), the Food Packaging Forum (FPF) will hold a public webinar on the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) perspectives on food additives.

In July 2018, the AAP published a policy statement and a technical report on the effects of direct and indirect food additives on child health in the peer-reviewed journal Pediatrics (FPF reported). Dr. Leonardo Trasande of the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine, U.S., and lead author of the articles, will review the two documents, address implications for global policies, and discuss simple steps to limit exposure to chemicals of greatest concern, with a focus on food contact articles. After Dr. Trasande’s talk, there will be time for questions.
