What better is the Culmination of Food than Nutrition?

The nutrition from the food is preeminent as the food itself. And with the absence of adequate nutritional value in the food, in the long run, food consumption even turns futile, leading to a double burden of malnutrition. To ensure a continuous flow of food, especially in high malnutrition regions via food deficit, and in a country as big as India, a food supply channel or chain needs establishing. Thus the flip side of malnutrition, extending beyond undernutrition and causing diseases like obesity and diabetes, needs redresser as well. A somewhat out of the box approach is needed to ensure nutritional intake over the section suffering from such issues. In the absence of a nutritional diet, the likelihood of under-nutrition and over-nutrition, with its short-term and long-term consequences increases. The consequences of prolonged malnutrition, mostly resulting from over-nutrition caused by consumption of unhealthy and junk foods, render long-lasting effects such as diabetes, thyroid, hepatomegaly, etc. Optimum nutritional deficit crucially impacting sustainable development depends upon the sustainable dependency over the food consumed. Thus a modern approach is needed to regulate and optimize and tackle the modern world's nutritional problems.
