What Do We Need to Do Next to Make Food Systems More Nutrition Sensitive?

Sheryl L. Hendriks of the University of Pretoria comments on designing food systems, and an expanding understanding of nutrition that considers hidden hunger and the food environment. She calls for innovation at all stages of the food system to deliver more nutrition per unit at affordable prices, which will require collective responsibility of the private sector and consumers. Researchers need to characterize what a healthy food environment consists of in order to develop accountability systems to shape future food systems for delivering better nutrition.
