While hunger is once again on the rise and undernutrition persists, diet-related health conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer are also increasing rapidly.3,4 More communities face a double burden of malnutrition, where both undernutrition (stunting, wasting, micronutrient deficiencies) and overweight/obesity are prevalent with more than half of the world’s population struggling with hunger and malnutrition.5 One reason for this is that, in recent decades, food systems have tended to provide more quantity but less quality food.6 Greater availability of cheap calories has not been accompanied by better availability of a diversity of nutritious foods.

Adult obesity is rising in nearly every country, and while rates of childhood overweight/ obesity have levelled off in some countries, they continue to rise in others and are unacceptably high in many. (...) High fasting plasma glucose, high LDL cholesterol, dietary risks, high systolic blood pressure, and high body mass index–all diet related--comprise the vast majority of the fastest growing risk factors driving up disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), in all regions (Lancet 2020). Overweight and obesity are not limited to wealthier nations but exist in low- and middle-income countries as well. (...) AT1, Strand 2 - Increased access to nutritious food: For this area of work, the 2030 WHO/UNICEF targets for stunting and overweight in children are also relevant, as are those for anaemia in women, and the WHO targets for adult obesity (a halt in the rise in prevalence by 2025) and reduction in NCDs (a reduction of 25% in mortality by 2025, alongside halting the rise in diabetes and decreased consumption of salt, WHO voluntary targets).
