One old proverb says that we are what we eat. Alimentation is one of the most necessary conditions for a well-being of men. It influences the state of health, the strength and forces for work and leisure time that is why the nutritional products must be healthy and fresh. Nutritional disorders cause many serious diseases, which may lead even to death.
The main purposes of the World Food Day celebration are 1) cooperate to diminish hunger and malnutrition and 2) abate poverty, especially in rural area.
