FAO: Right to healthy food should be a key dimension for Zero Hunger

19.02.2019 16:19 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of last week, Director-General José Graziano da Silva has given a lecture A Global Perspective on Regulating and Promoting Nutrition’ at the University of California Law School, FAO reports. Within the lecture, da Silva said the right to food requires a new approach that encompasses a right to healthy diets. «We need to reposition our food systems from feeding people to nourishing people. As to our latest data, obesity and overweight are growing faster than hunger. It is an epidemic. The right to healthy food should be a key dimension for zero hunger and for the right to food itself,» he admitted. As to him, ensuring the right to adequate food is more than just having enough food on the table. It means empowering people to feed themselves and their family in dignity. It is about ensuring all children everywhere have access to the healthy diets they need to reach their full potential. It is to be admitted, the Right to Food is included within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which was endorsed by all countries over 70 years ago. It is also guaranteed by numerous international instruments and national constitutions. However, global malnutrition numbers show that now many people do not have regular access to a healthy diet.
