Abstract

Until relatively recently, the paramount concerns of nutritionists and policymakers in nutrition seem to have been exclusively of a scientific nature. Although humanitarian concern has been the overriding basis for the application of their work and must not be neglected, many nutritionists have begun to realize that economic questions should also be of primary importance. We intend to show how economics can be integrated with nutritional science in order to assist in the development of needed nutritional policies.
