Improved consumption & health

The WHO definition of food security refers to having ‘physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet people’s dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life’. Research on food security must therefore focus on consumers’ dietary needs, and food preferences and practices and their links to public health, as well as focusing on questions of food supply, affordability and distribution (addressed in Themes 1 and 2) critical to developing sustainable nutrition.
