Dear everyone,
I would like some small ideas:
Generally, whole nutrient and health issues  are  under Ministry of health. However, that oriented and mentioned FAO here is various nutrient sources  in agriculture products seen like  as basic inputs  to supply everything for mankind from foods, including energy, nutrient, drugs, ect .  Then, the nutrient programmers  should be considered as key indicates to assess the  success of national  programmers and also be integrated in other ones. In personal  knowledge, there may be  3 ways recommended to obtain the purposes:
1.    At community level, diversity of crop species needed to just  improve livelihood and also secure to food and nutrients;
2.    At crop breeding programmers,  every crop should be studied  towards multi use purposes such as multi-nutrient components. For examples, sweetpotato, potato
3.    At national nutrient and health programmers, fresh,  green and various food values are first indicates  

Best regards,
