There's more to healthy eating than meets the eye.
What people feed themselves and their families is driven not just by cultural norms and personal habits, but also by the range of food they're able to access. This in turn is governed by issues of food security, trade and more. Increasingly, the quality and quantity of the world's supply is changing – and so is the way that people eat. The result is malnutrition and poor health in communities across the world. Deep divisions in global food equity exacerbate this burden for poor and vulnerable populations.
LAUNCH Food is calling for innovators, entrepreneurs, organisations and individuals from around the world to put forward innovative solutions for improving global health outcomes by enabling people to make healthy food choices.
