Appointment process of Grant Schofield, Chief Education Health and Nutrition Advisor

Helen Gibbs made this Official Information request to State Services Commission

The request was partially successful.

From: Helen Gibbs

Dear State Services Commission,

Dr Schofield's research interests include areas of nutrition controversy, and he makes public statements that are in conflict with the current Ministry of Health recommendations on Diet and Nutrition. I am concerned this is going to result in greater confusion for the public and poorer health outcomes due to a lack of coordinated effort on childhood obesity

1) Please can you provide me with the document outlining the scope and remit of the Chief Education Health and Nutrition Advisor?
2) Please can you provide the documentation outlining the process followed in the appointment of Dr Schofield to this role.
3) Please can you advise which organisation with interest in either child health or nutrition were consulted by the Ministry of Education as part of the process of making the appointment to this position?

Yours faithfully,

Helen Gibbs
New Zealand Registered Dietitian
