Summary
  • This book presents a discussion of the major policy issues with regard to nutrition which have been evolving during the last decade. The key issues for the nineties were arrived at in consultation with members of the IUNS Committee on Nutrition and Development. Perhaps the main realization that emerges from the book is the need for education in general, and for nutrition and health education in particular, especially in developing countries in order to solve nutrition problems. More research is also required to establish what an ideal diet is in different cultures and ecological environments in all countries
  • Although this is a policy book, it contains considerable original information as some chapters are the product of major studies. The contributors to the book are well-known in their fields with considerable experience in policy, planning, and implementation. The book is of interest to policy-makers, programme administrators, scholars, and individuals interested in nutrition policy. It addresses issues relevant to industrialized as well as developing countries, and will also be useful as a reference text for university courses on nutrition
