Food and nutrition notes
Millions of people across the world find it impossible to get a sufficient amount and variety of safe food each day. Others may have access to enough food but still lack the knowledge to make good dietary and lifestyle choices to get the best from their food. Both situations can lead to poor nutrition, diseases related to diet, and poor health.
The FAO booklet «Get the best from your food» provides some simple guidance for the general public. The following Notes provide further information for those who need it. They should be of particular use in nutrition education programmes. They can be used in conjunction with the booklet «Get the best from your flood».
