Is diet on the agenda or not?

I’m puzzled. Having taken one attendee at the recent biofortification conference to task for utterly ignoring dietary diversity as a source of good nutrition, we were told, privately, that “biodiverse diets are 1st choice, but high nutrient crops can help in the mean time or in addition to a diverse diet”. And yet I have just read another stirring report from that conference that does not mention diversity of diet.

Am I still missing something?

  1. Yeah. You’re missing the bigger (than a ‘superfood walnut’) picture. Or rather, the biofortifiers focused on enhancing ‘high nutrient crops’ are missing the bigger picture. Why do we (specialists) think that stating the obvious will hurt our (narrow) PR campaigns?
