WFD Activity Book

Children's Activity Book 

The right to food means we should all be able to enjoy nutritious food so that we can grow and live an active life. Some food choices are based on preference, culture, time- or cooking skills. But two very important things affect what many decide to eat: how much it costs and how easy it is to find. With this year's World Food Day Activity Book, explore the importance of food as a human right, healthy diets, the global challenges that impact our food systems, and the solutions that rely on our actions. No matter your age, each of us can learn how our choices can contribute to a world where everyone has enough diverse nutritious and safe food, leaving no one behind.
