World Nutrition Day 2023

New Content ItemWorld Nutrition Day is marked every year on May 28th to highlight the importance of the right nutrition.

A critical aspect of health and development, good nutrition is linked to improved child and maternal health, stronger immune systems, and a reduced risk of non-communicable diseases. Good nutrition is key to productivity and is a facilitator of breaking the cycles of poverty and hunger.

In contrast, malnutrition presents significant dangers to health, particularly in low- and middle- income countries. Inadequate vitamins and minerals can lead to both wasting and obesity, both of which can lead to severe health problems.

This World Nutrition Day, Journal of Health, Population and Nutrition would like to highlight the top performing articles in 2022 that have helped shaped the research landscape, with the aim of improving the nutritional health of those in LMICs in particular.
