    An account of the consultation at the FAO regional office in Bangkok from 20 to 23 November 2001, which was attended by representatives of Bangladesh, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vanuatu and Viet Nam. The experts reviewed progress by countries in the region toward implementing food based dietary guidelines to assist in the choice of the right kind and right amount of food by people in Asia-Pacific countries. The past two decades have seen a size able increase in food production and consumption in the region, but the average diet still lacks dietary diversity, giving rise to micronutrient malnutrition and widespread protein energy malnutrition. The publication includes country presentations at the session and the recommendations that emerged from it for national action and to guide FAO's future work in this field. It also includes a section on the implementation of FAO's unique nutrition education endeavour - Feeding Minds, Fighting Hung er, a partnership of schools, governments, inter-governmental organizations, nutrition experts and non-governmental organizations.

    These are Food-Based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs) that define what a healthy diet means to Zambians. FBDGs are evidence-based recommendations that give advice on foods, food groups and dietary patterns that will provide the required nutrients to the public to promote overall nutrition, health and prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The FBDGs recommendations are accompanied by a series of nutrition messages and related visual illustrations, which represent what a healthy diet means targeting the public. FBDGs establish a basis for public food and nutrition, health and agricultural policies and nutrition education programmes to foster healthy eating habits and lifestyles. The development followed the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) ten-step systematic process. The Zambia Ministry of Agriculture led the development process with technical support from FAO through a TCP. About 44 members of the multi-sector technical working group represented by 21 government and non-government institutions were part of the FBDGs development process.
