“Poor diets and resulting malnutrition in all its forms are unacceptably high across the world” — Global Nutrition Report 2021

The International body, Global Nutrition Report (GNR) offers the world’s most comprehensive picture of the state of global nutrition and assesses the scale of the challenges faced in the fight to tackle poor diets and malnutrition in all its forms. Global Nutrition Report (GNR) has provided a report on the world’s current state of nutrition.

The quoted headline is contained in the foreword of the Global Nutrition Report 2021. The report provides a concise data-focused update on the state of diets and nutrition in the world.
The report, however, stated that almost half of the world suffers from a poor diet because we either eat too little or too much.

The report also identified various nutrition crises as Diet-related disease and mortality rates are large and increasing in most regions. The report opined that “Poor diets and malnutrition need to be addressed sustainably to ensure a healthy future for people and planet” as “Deaths attributable to poor diets have grown by 15% since 2010 – more rapidly than population growth – and are now responsible for more than 12 million NCD deaths in adults.”
