Food Systems for Improved Diets and Nutrition

Today, the prevalence rates of overweight, obesity and diet-related chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension are increasingin every region and most rapidly in low-and middle-income countries. Globally, 1 in 4 children under the age of 5 yrs, are stunted, and will not reach their full physical and mental potential. Less than a third of all young infants in 60 low-and middle-income countries are meeting the minimum dietary diversity standards needed for growth. An estimated 2 billion people are deficient in key micronutrients needs. By 2030, the number of overweight and obese people will have increased from 1.33 billion in 2005 to 3.28 billion, around one third of the projected global population. (A major concern since no country to date has successfully reversed growth in obesity). To learn more about how Food Systems Improve Diets and Nutrition, please download the file below:
