Food policies are increasingly being accepted as a strategy to reduce the prevalence of non-communicable diseases. However, there are still contestations on the types of food that should be regulated. Existing research shows powerful actors use discursive framing to influence political priority during the agenda setting phases of food policies.
However, there is paucity of research on the discursive framing that stakeholders deploy during policy formulation and implementation stages. This project seeks to examine the framing of nutritional attributes of food in food marketing policies to understand the discursive power dynamics that shape the implementation of these policies.
