Hi Shona,

The importance of good health and wellbeing (and education around what constitutes this) cannot be overstated. You are right to point out that there are two ends to the spectrum in terms of the issues surrounding the provision of food and healthy eating. Malnutrition exists in the developing world (and to some extent in parts of the developed world). In parts of the developed world, poor choices around the choice of food and the consumption of too much processed food can lead to obesity and other health issues. Educating children around this, and how food poverty does not necessarily always relate to malnutrition is very important.
