9 February 2017, the first Food for All Talk (#FFATalks) under the WBG-Netherlands Partnership took place on the subject: Food Systems for Healthier Diets.
Consumer demand for healthy diets and nutrition outcomes have to drive the value chains, influencing what the private sector delivers and what farming systems produce. However….What is a healthy diet? Can the food system provide adequate, affordable and acceptable food? Where adequate is based on calories and micronutrients; and acceptable is determined by local food culture/preferences. Does the private sector produce what people need or what they want (which is not the same)? How can we change consumer behavior?
