World Nutrition Day

World Nutrition Day is celebrated annually on October 16 to highlight the millions of people around the world who cannot afford a healthy diet and the need for regular access to nutritious foods.
  • Promoting global awareness about those who suffer from hunger and highlight the need to ensure safe, healthy meals for all.
  • Highlighting concern and action to prevent, detect and manage foodborne hazards and improve human health.
