 en Connected Community and Household Food-Based Strategy (CCH−FBS): Its Importance for Health, Food Safety, Sustainability and Security in Diverse Localities
WAHLQVIST, MARK L.

Abstract

In this article, I argue that Connected Community and Household Food-Based Strategy (CCH−FBS) could contribute to the resolution of outstanding nutritionally−related health problems. The 1995 Food−Based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs) have been customized in regions and nations, encouraging integrated food systems and culturally−sensitive food−health relationships with economic development. Climate change and diminishing fuel and food affordability have made their role in promoting food security critical. Localities with their eco−systems, communities and households, could apply FBDGs to correct mismatches between food systems, individual health needs, and environmental integrity. Improved infrastructure should allow communities and households to be usefully connected and operate with CCH−FBSs.
