Cameroon joins the international community to commemorate World Food Day this 16th October 2018.
The commemorative activities come at a time when there are concerns about food quality in some parts of Cameroon.
A December 2017 World Food Programme report states that approximately 16% of households are food insecure.
The Far North region is the worse hit followed by the Adamawa and North regions.
Thankfully, the World Food Programme in partnership with government have been very present to assist the population.
World Food Day: best eating habits
Dr. Kamga Willy of the Yaounde General Hospital Ngousso says;
“We sometimes receive patients who come to consult for issues that stem from bad dieting. We always advise them to follow treatment and we propose a diet for them. Most patients neglect medical advice until their situations are critical.”
Dr Kamga says eating healthy does not mean eating too much.
He states that a balance diet and physical exercise is the key to a healthy lifestyle.
On the occasion of World Food Day, Madame Elisabeth Lon a nutritionist in Bamenda gets another opportunity to educate the rural women on the importance of a balanced diet.
