Providing perspectives on recent research into vitamins and nutritionals


The Road to Good Nutrition

By Michael McBurney

As part of the Vitamins In Motion campaign, DSM Nutritional Products and Sight and Life launch a new book at the International Congress of Nutrition in Granada Spain. The book brings together experience and insights from globally recognized experts in nutrition. The press release highlights the the essential role that micronutrients play in health and wellness throughout life.

In his foreword to the book, Dr David Nabarro, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Food Security and Nutrition and Coordinator of the SUN (Scaling Up Nutrition) Movement, writes: “The Road to Good Nutrition …brings together the experience and insights of globally recognized experts in the field of nutrition to create an in-depth introduction to the subject for the non-expert. My hope is that The Road to Good Nutrition will help us all to accelerate our progress along the path to a world where everyone receives the food and the nutrition to which they have a self-evident right.”

As Dr Patrick Webb, Dean of Academic Affairs, Friedman School of Nutrition and Policy at Tufts University says, “This book represents a rallying cry. It is a call to action to address a massive unfinished global agenda. Undernutrition in all its forms is still responsible for almost half of the world’s child mortality. Other malnourished children survive, but they cannot thrive. The Road to Good Nutrition pulls together the latest evidence on underlying causes and priority solutions.  It demands to be widely read, and its findings deserve to be taken very seriously.
