The Nutrient Profiling Model considers the balance of the ingredients and nutritional content of a food or drink. It does not measure the contribution of foods and drinks to the diet overall. No assessment of vitamin D or calcium intake of children has been made.

The Nutrient Profiling Model is available to view at the following link:
