I thoroughly enjoyed this self study course and required reading. It significantly expanded my knowledge of impacts on the global food system, how these factors including geopolitical history contribute to malnutrition at all parts of the spectrum and how our choices in food and nutrition lead to health both internally/biologically and the biodiversity in the environment.

This course and required reading are timely and highlight the future and challenges of the world's food system. With the double burden of global obesity and hunger mixed in with an industrialized food system and climate change, we as dietitians/nutrition experts need to step up to the plate and help educate the population to save the planet one plate at a time.

In line with the need to make behavior changes to support the planet, this course offers an excellent tool for the RDN to see the role in which food plays with this goal. As demonstrated in the course, small changes with diet education and an emphasis on more of a plant-based diet approach with clients can have a significant impact.
