Future Nutrition - from awareness to action

It was over a month ago that we released the report Future Nutrition - Understanding our toxic transition on the four major transitions that are impacting our food systems today. The debate around ultra processed food since then has increased all NIN-ICARaround and currently the National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) and Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) have recommended heavily against the intake of the Ultra Processed Food (UPF) that we had highlighted as one of the biggest menace against nutrition security in the  country. Their key recommendations are summarized here. 

Meanwhile the Assertive Consumer Forum was launched on the 11th May 2024 virtually with several concerned and conscious consumers from across the country joining together online wanting to be part of a solution rather than only watch the toxic transition unfold around us. Many people have responded positively to the report and among them is Gandhigram, one of the oldest and most reputed Gandhian institutions in the country today. It was heartwarming to get an appreciative mail from the Secretary and also with the information that he is initiating the dialogue among the homes, schools and hospitals on the dangers of ultra processed food. Such institutional response with a follow-up through creating enabling system for safe food for both staff and clients will go a long way in ushering in a nutritious and healthy future society.
