Diet-related diseases, be they tied to undernutrition or obesity, remain one of the most pressing societal challenges. In Canada, over 60 percent of the adult population is overweight or obese. Excess body weight is a significant risk factor for several diseases including heart disease and cancer, which are the top causes of death in North America. Alarmingly, life expectancy in the USA has decreased for 2 years in a row, partly due to diet-related chronic diseases and overweight/obesity.

 

Meanwhile, India is the ‘world capital’ for undernutrition as well as diabetes – a chronic disease largely tied to overnutrition. These figures highlight the urgency for more effective strategies to support both individuals and families in their struggle or lifelong nutrition, and also to assist those actors throughout society that define contexts for food choice and behavior.
