Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In China, agriculture, health, education, and welfare are intricately woven as part of the development and its relationship to health programs, the strategy of food rationing and the "private plot" to improve nutrition and health, and the balance of food and population in the Chinese society. China's nutritional experience contributes significantly to understanding the role of "energy food" in the struggle against protein malnutrition and hunger. The author has outlined the implications for the developing countries.
