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