EUROPE: Can low-income households afford a healthy diet?  | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it
In Europe, food insecurity is still a serious concern for individual and public health. Although progress has been made in reducing undernourishment, other types of malnutrition such as obesity and overweight are on the rise. Policies that aim at improving healthy eating and addressing food insecurity tend to focus on food aid, nutritional education and financial incentives. These policies are generally not targeted at the problem of insufficient income as a key barrier to access a healthy diet.

Olive oil bot­tlers are strug­gling to ensure that imports will be reach­ing their fac­to­ries in the com­ing weeks to meet the demand.
Many Euro­pean logis­tics work­ers expressed fears that com­ing to Italy could put them in quar­an­tine upon return­ing to their own coun­tries. New safety mea­sures and addi­tional doc­u­men­ta­tion requests have been tak­ing their toll on olive oil and other cru­cial food imports.

The world we inhabit today has changed dramatically since we first began farming thousands of years ago.
