Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems for Children and all Coalition

EAT, GAIN, EAT, WWF, WHO, UNICEF, FAO, WFP, UNEP, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland

The shared vision of the coalition is a world where all people are eating healthy diets from sustainable food systems. The aim is that healthy diets are available, affordable, and accessible to all, especially the most vulnerable to malnutrition and those living in vulnerable circumstances. The measurable goal is to halve the number of people who cannot afford a healthy diet while ensuring food is produced sustainably. All stakeholders have a role to play. Many implement policies and practices that directly and indirectly influence the availability, accessibility, affordability and appeal of healthy diets, and how they are produced.  Yet policies, programmes, and practices typically focus on sector specific goals, leading to fragmentation. While governments must play a leading role, the nature of the problem demands aligned action from all corners of the food system. A broad coalition inclusive of multiple actions is thus vital to align and strengthen actions across sectors and the different elements of food systems at all levels to achieve collective impact on healthy diets from sustainable food systems.
