Vietnam’s impressive economic growth has changed the lifestyle and habits of many Vietnamese people, including what young people eat and drink. Socioeconomic development, globalization of the food system, and urbanization have all contributed to changing diets in Vietnam. The country has nutritional problems at both ends of the spectrum right now. There are many underweight and malnourished students here. At the same time, there are also many overweight and obese students.
Over the past year, AmCham and National Institute of Nutrition have collaborated on a study throughout Vietnam to look at nutritional status, dietary intake, and the frequency and habits of food consumption of primary, secondary and high school students. Join us on Wednesday, July 3 for a briefing on the results of this study which will provide policy makers important data to help establish a foundation for heathier habits and nutritional knowledge in Vietnam.
