Food Safety: A Foundation for Nutrition and Growth
Nutrition for Growth (N4G) has articulated a vision where no woman or child is held back from reaching their full potential because they did not have access to a healthy diet. Food safety, defined as the assurance that food will not cause harm to the consumer when it is prepared or eaten according to its intended use (FAO/WHO 1997), is an integral part of that healthy diet. In short, food safety and nutrition are inextricably linked in a myriad of ways. This side session will delve into the complex multisectoral requirements to keep food safe, with a focus on low and middle-income countries (LMIC) and the informal markets within them where low-income consumers source their diets.

In this session, a set of specific causal pathways will be presented through which food safety and nutrition are interlinked, grouped into the domains of health and physiology, consumer behavior, supply chains and markets, and policy and regulation. These linkages illustrate the direct ways in which food safety and foodborne diseases may impact nutrition outcomes—and vice versa. Underlying assumptions will be shared, and the evidence associated with these pathways will be discussed.
