In rapidly developing Asian economies, populations are moving from undernourishment and famine, to obesity and overconsumption, referred to as nutrition transition (NT). Yet simultaneously, with observed widening equalities, undernutrition and its health impacts co-exist with over-nutrition.

In rapidly developing Asian economies, populations are moving from undernourishment and famine, to obesity and overconsumption, referred to as nutrition transition (NT). Yet simultaneously, with observed widening equalities, undernutrition and its health impacts co-exist with over-nutrition. Healthcare systems of developed countries are struggling to cope with diseases of over-nutrition, while literature suggests the re-emergence of nutritional deficiencies such as scurvy and rickets in these areas.1 While nutritional concerns have temporal and population-specific dimensions, maintaining healthy eating behaviour remains a global challenge. In this editorial, we outline some of the challenges and emphasise the need to collaboratively address them, towards making food and nutrition systems and healthier eating sustainable.
