A healthy diet perspective is essential to ensure food systems focus on supplying nutritious foods and providing equitable access to healthy, sustainable, and culturally acceptable diets. The paper discusses converging and conflicting objectives that exist among food-system actors, argues that failure to strengthen synergies and resolve trade-offs may lead to missed opportunities and negative unintended consequences, and highlights promising policy options to shift consumer demand to healthier diets.
