Re: Nutrition-enhancing agriculture and food systems

When we talk of Agriculture we stress only on foods of plant origin ignoring the foods of animal origin.
But foods of animal origin are nutritious (milk, eggs, etc). So policy should be taken up that foods of animal origin are being considered important addition in agriculture production system as a policy.
If we look in average life expectancy found most of the developed countries are not depended on plant foods only. The per capita consumption of milk, egg and meats have a great role to form healthy foods besides income generation of the poor people.
