So how can there be problems of too many calories at the same time as there are too few calories? In the same countries? While not technically impossible it’s hard to believe.
The solution is that it’s not really about calories, primarily. It’s about food quality. The report has it right:
The main reason for the food problems, the report says, is there is more “junk” food available, food that does not provide nutrition. Another problem is drinks with high sugar or high trans-fat, but low nutritional value.
We don’t need less food for our kids, we need better food.
