The world is now recognizing a global food security issue, which will most likely worsen before it improves. The fast rise in worldwide prices of fundamental commodities such as wheat, maize, and rice, as well as rising demand due to population growth, economic growth, rising energy costs, climate change, and biofuel production, all contribute to this devastating problem. This issue will have the greatest impact on the most nutritionally and economically challenged people. Particularly in emerging and third-world nations. As with other food crises, the initial impact is mostly on food consumption, which will result in a drop in the quantity, quality, diversity, and frequency of meals.

Countries' food and agricultural policy must be focused on feeding people properly and safely. Strategies to promote healthy diets and lifestyles should involve all sectors of society. Many poor families' coping strategies include seeking low-cost local alternatives.

To solve this dilemma, all nutritionists must collaborate on revitalizing the usage of local traditional foods, in addition to other options. One of the most significant short-term actions might be this. We must all remember that amid a food crisis, biodiversity and the use of local traditional, relatively affordable, readily available crops may be the only option, at least until medium and long-term plans take effect or the food crisis ends.

As the new Editor-in-Chief of the National Nutrition Institute Bulletin, I commit to providing a forum for study and discussion on these vital problems. Our publication will continue to be a source of information and a driving force for change in the field of nutrition and related disciplines. We can work together, to develop long-term solutions to the global food security challenge and ensure a better, more nourished world for all.

Thank you for your support, and I look forward to the journey ahead.
