Going beyond food aid: The challenge of improving nutrition
Tim Smedley, Guardian Professional, takes us through the challenges of improving nutrition in a world where too much attention continues to be given to increased production and exports of staple crops. Smedley ends on a positive note, higlighting the work that can and is already being done at the community level to promote small-scale food production that is more diverse and nutritious. He also provides a "field guide nutrition checklist" with concrete actions and target groups that will help us go beyond food aid to improve nutrition.
