Abstract

The nutrition transition to industrialised food systems has provided the most affordable, secure and safe food supply in the history of humanity, but has been accompanied by a pandemic of chronic disease.

It is time to rethink our relationship with food.

Nutrition science has a crucial role to play in partnership with other relevant disciplines as part of an integrated strategy of research and education.
