Better nutrition means:
- decreased undernourishment, especially during the early years of life, to raise healthy, productive individuals;
- healthy food supply to promote overall well-being;
- increased food security, which leads to more balanced food prices and greater access by poorer people to all products and services;
- improved food safety to safeguard public health and reduce the premature mortality of mothers and children from non-communicable diseases; and
- better food distribution to reduce food loss and waste, and increase community self-sufficiency.
