OUR ACTIONS ARE OUR FUTURE. HEALTHY DIETS. FOR A #ZEROHUNGER WORLD.
We at African Harvesters celebrate the World Food Day 2019 today 16th October 2019.
The theme for this year world food day focus on Healthy Diets for a zero hunger world and how our actions affects our future.
Over 820 million people suffer from hunger while over 670 million adults and 120 million girls and boys (5-19 years) are obese, and over 40 million children under 5 are overweight. Attaining food security needs to address quality and quantity of our food thereby addressing healthy and sustainable diets affordable and accessible to everyone.
Our options for meals is our responsibility so we all need to choose a healthy diet that meets our nutritional needs. Our foods needs to include fruits, vegetables, legumes,seeds, nuts, and whole grains, and foods that are low in fats (especially saturated fats), sugar and salt.
Happy World Food Day from African Harvesters Team.
