Adequate nutrition is essential for health, growth and well-being and every person on this planet has the right to nutritious food. Yet, 793 million people, or one in every nine, go to bed hungry. They lack even the basic food to meet their energy needs. Hidden hunger or lack of adequate vitamins and minerals (in particular vitamin A, iron, iodine and zinc), affects even more people: an estimated 2 billion. Not eating a balanced diet is another form of malnutrition that can lead to suffering from obesity, an issue that is increasing at an alarmingly fast rate, affecting approximately 1.9 billion people worldwide. Overweight and obesity are a risk factor for diet related noncommunicable diseases like heart disease, diabetes and others.
