Combatting malnutrition in all its forms – undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight, and obesity – is one of the greatest global challenges that countries face today and food systems and diets are major contributors to the nutritional status of populations. For these reasons the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) developed Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition, published in February 2021, with the objective of contributing to ensure healthy diets based on adequate, accessible and availabe food.
