Presentazione standard di PowerPoint Promoting Health Through Horticulture ALISON HODDER PLANT PRODUCTION AND PROTECTION DIVISION Pacific Regional Workshop on Promotion of Fruit and Vegetables for Health PROFAV 2014 Public health goals • Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of: • essential vitamins and minerals (A, folate, C, E, potassium) • fibre • vegetable protein • At least 400 grams of fruits and vegetables person/day (or 5 portions per day/80 grams each) – WHO/FAO (2003) • 600 grams of non-starchy vegetables and fruits per person/day (World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research) Vitamin A deficiency among children 4 Data : needs and gaps • Beware of generalisation in data interpretation : figures to map fruit and vegetable supply and availability at national level are at best vague and at worst unreliable • Data at local level unavailable; much of production and consumption is effectively invisible – these data gaps need to be filled • Supply ≠ consumption A new challenge: Diet-related non-communicable diseases (NCDs) • heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes are no longer limited to affluent countries • 80% of premature deaths occur in middle- and low-income countries Diet and NCDs in PICTs • Fruit and vegetable intake in PICTs well below the FAO-WHO recommended level of five servings or 400g/person/day; • High prevalence of NCDs; • Significant incidence of obesity in PICT s - major risk factor for NCDs, principally diabetes and cardiovascular disease; • High incidence of under-nutrition and micro- nutrient deficiency co-existing with obesity. 7 Characterising and addressing the gap in supply and consumption • Understanding current consumption patterns and causal / motivational factors is essential in any national campaign pro fruit and vegetables • Allowing for different attitudes/perceptions: fruit vis-à-vis vegetable consumption • Addressing supply and demand deficits simultaneously and through coordinated campaigns... 8 The challenge of boosting consumption • Nutrition education - increasing public awareness about importance of F&V in healthy diets • Efforts to influence F&V consumption behaviour targeting women and school children especially • The risk of F&V consumption actually dropping in quantity and/or diversity (increasing urbanisation of populations, nutrition transition, increasing prices, food safety fears, etc.) - is real and needs to be understood and addressed Fruit and vegetables for health • Simple messages: – Increased consumption of fruit and vegetables desirable within the context of ensuring a better general dietary pattern – 400g daily per capita intake of a variety of fruits and vegetables – a population goal • Role of F&V in diets equally relevant, whether for preventing (malnutrition-related) micronutrient deficiency or prevention of (over-nutrition-related) non-communicable diseases 10 Fostering the development of competent F&V supply chains In the development context: • Horticulture = high value, added value - an effective driver of poverty alleviation interventions • Creating an enabling policy environment+incentives • Pressures to increase supply carry a challenge to ensure that: ◦ special attention is given to food safety, and production methods are safe for operators (IPM, GAP) ◦ improved access to F&V benefits the poor and not just the wealthy ◦ intensification of production is sustainable ◦ efficiency improvement issues in both rural and urban/peri- urban production settings are addressed ◦ year-round availability of a variety of F&V is achieved ◦ good market linkages reduce risk of over-production And to improve supply? (...)
