Dietary Transition: Implications for Nutrition

Dr Vani took up the studies of diet diversification as it was found that poverty reduced sharply but undernourishment did not. She is of the opinion that with growing urbanisation and changing lifestyles our food has become more fat based. Obesity and underweight have to be tackled fast as these can lead to non-communicable diseases. The increasing protein of young population should understand the importance of healthy eating and healthy life style.
