WHO strengthens healthy eating initiatives

COVID-19 and climate change have exacerbated the problem of inadequate nutrition in all its forms and threatened the sustainability and resilience of food systems around the world. At the Summit on Nutrition for Prosperity held in Tokyo 7-8. In December 2021, the World Health Organization published six new recommendations to accelerate progress towards achieving the goals of healthy eating for 2025, which are further focused on with the current pandemic. These include expanding initiatives to prevent and treat overweight and obesity, stepping up activities to create an environment that promotes safe and healthy eating, special support for countries in tackling acute malnutrition, accelerating activities to reduce anemia, increasing quality promotion and support for breastfeeding, and strengthening nutrition and nourishment systems and databases, as well as data usage.You can read about the complete initiative here.
