This is the second of two issues of CAJANUS focusing on the theme Food and
Nutrition Security in CARIFORUM countries. This issue draws from studies on Jamaica, St. Lucia and Belize, which were conducted by the Caribbean Food and Nutrition Institute (CFNI) for the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in 2007.

This issue of CAJANUS is based on a report on food and nutrition security in CARIFORUM countries prepared by the Caribbean Food and Nutrition Institute (CFNI) for the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in August 2007.

This issue is dedicated to a five-year project of the Caribbean Food and Nutrition Institute (CFNI), funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), aimed at the incorporation of nutrition in the treatment and management of HIV and AIDS in the Caribbean.

 

The focus of this issue of Cajanus is the obesity epidemic in the Caribbean. The strategies needed to fight obesity in light of the dimensions of the obesity problem in the Caribbean are discussed extensively. The reported findings will inform scholarly research on the subject.

This issue of CAJANUS, and the next, will discuss the nutrient content and health benefits of some commonly used foods in the Caribbean. This issue focuses on: Staples, Legumes and Nuts, Fruits and Vegetables – four of the six Caribbean Food Groups.
