In recent decades, nutritional science has clearly demonstrated the importance of nutrition for health and general well-being. Adequate nutrition means when people have access to, and consume enough, food which their body is then able to absorb to meet all its nutritional requirements. It is a combination of food security, food availability, food access, food use, food safety, food quality, and food utilization. The evidence of the impact of food on health and human productivity is well established in infants and young children, and scientific data shows the impact of malnutrition on infant and young children’s growth. Given the complexity of food security, nutritionists, food scientists and healthcare workers must work together to fight malnutrition in developing countries.
