An Inside View: The Sight and Life team’s top ten favorite blog posts

Over the years, Sight and Life has tackled a range of topics including deep dives into social marketing and nutrition concepts. During this ‘Zoom era’ of fast-paced and constant inundation of information, we take a step back to reflect on those pieces that really resonate with us. We are excited to share the top ten Sight and Life blog posts that made a lasting impression on our team members.  

Inspire! Invest! Innovate!

Our aspiration is that the transformation of failing food systems lies in Innovation Hubs.

Helping Entrepreneurs Helps Us All

In a recent Global Entrepreneurship Report, Africa was shown to be the region that reports the most positive attitude towards entrepreneurship, with three-quarters of working-age adults considering entrepreneurship a good career choice.

Fortifying Our Food to Fight Climate Change

In recent decades, two very modern elements have radically transformed the world’s food systems: rapid technological advancement and global warming.

A Double Burden on our Emerging Economies

The obesity epidemic has received much attention in recent decades, particularly in high-income countries, and with good reason.

Innovation for Transformation

The Covid-19 pandemic has served as a collective reminder that our well-being is delicately intertwined with that of our neighbor. During this crisis, we have also seen that the transfer of data, information, know-how, and resources across borders has been crucial in accelerating our capacity for mitigation. By sharing new treatment strategies, developing safe and effective vaccines, and distributing PPE to those who need it most we have come together in a global, coordinated effort. This has been remarkable and heartening to witness.

The Dietary Diversity Score Dilemma

Today, Sight and Life is joining hands with FAO to celebrate World Food Day. This year, in fact, marks the 75th Anniversary of the founding of FAO, and World Food Day 2020 aptly has the theme “Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. Our actions are our future.”

Alternative Proteins: The nutritionists perspective

The world’s population is growing, and for many, the question of how we ensure an adequate food supply for all while sustaining our planet and natural resources is a crucial one. Fundamental to addressing the current global nutrition crisis is to deliver food that can guarantee delivery of adequate nutrients to people affected by all forms of malnutrition and the population as a whole. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), sustainable diets have a low environmental impact while contributing to food and nutrition security for our present and future generations. In other words, sustainable diets should respect and protect ecosystems and biodiversity next to being culturally acceptable, affordable, accessible, safe and healthy [1].

Alternative Proteins: Speaking to consumers

The global food system is recalibrating in the wake of many factors, one of which is the increasing demand for traditional proteins, driven in large part by low-or-middle-income emerging markets in the Global South (see Alternative Proteins: What’s the deal?). What this has led to is the rise of a new category ‘Alternative Proteins’ encompassing everything from re-engineered plant-based legumes to lab-grown meats. The mushrooming of new brands in this category have been centered in the Global North, with some markets even reaching close to saturation point (read this to find out what all the hype is about). The market share is expected to change as the case for alternative proteins in the Global South gains traction.
