BACKGROUND

Globally, more than 1.4 billion adults are at risk of developing or exacerbating diseases due to a lack of physical activity, according to the recent World Health Organization (WHO) study in 2018.

Physical inactivity is a complex and multi-factorial behavior whose determinants vary across countries. Over the past years, Singapore’s sedentary lifestyle influenced by rapid urbanization has been a public health concern with serious health implications. Lack of time or energy and its tropical climate further deter individuals from participating in physical activity.

OBJECTIVES

This symposium aims to:

  • Review the current status of physical activity in Singapore
  • Share national programs and guidelines for promoting and performing physical activity
  • Discuss technological tools for tracking and assessing physical activity; and
  • Highlight nutritional approaches and exercise strategies for maximizing health and physical performance.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Sport science, nutrition and health professionals, academia and research organizations, representatives from the government agencies, sport associations, food and beverage sectors, and relevant stakeholders.

Food packaging plays an integral role in providing safe, nutritious and sustainable food supply to the global consumers. Advances in innovative technologies, changing consumption trends and consumer preferences have led to the development of an array of food packaging material used for food products and by the food services industry. However, there are now increasing awareness and concerns on the development and widespread use of non-degradable food packaging materials that have led to negative environmental impacts. For example, styrofoam boxes, cartons, plastics utensils and polyolefin packaging for retail, ready-to-deliver and ready-to-eat foods from food services and others have resulted in the drastic increase of solid waste in the environment. Concerted efforts are now ongoing by government, industry, and researchers to help address and reduce the utilization and impact of such non-degradable food contact materials.

Along with the emergence and application of packaging technologies, measures and regulations have been established to ascertain the safe uses of food additives and food contact materials by international bodies such as CODEX Alimentarius and JECFA, through agreed safety assessment methods and evaluation processes for adoption by various health authorities. However, there remain wide differences in the regulations associated with food packaging, contaminants, and recyclable food contact materials between regions and among countries. An understanding of these differences and the scientific process used for evaluation and approval would benefit all the stakeholders to ensure our foods are safe and our food supply system remain sustainable.

BACKGROUND

Globally, more than 1.4 billion adults are at risk of developing or exacerbating diseases due to a lack of physical activity, according to the recent World Health Organization (WHO) study in 2018.

Physical inactivity is a complex and multi-factorial behavior whose determinants vary across countries. Over the past years, Singapore’s sedentary lifestyle influenced by rapid urbanization has been a public health concern with serious health implications. Lack of time or energy and its tropical climate further deter individuals from participating in physical activity.

OBJECTIVES

This symposium aims to:

  • Review the current status of physical activity in Singapore
  • Share national programs and guidelines for promoting and performing physical activity
  • Discuss technological tools for tracking and assessing physical activity; and
  • Highlight nutritional approaches and exercise strategies for maximizing health and physical performance.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Sport science, nutrition and health professionals, academia and research organizations, representatives from the government agencies, sport associations, food and beverage sectors, and relevant stakeholders.
