World Food Day- 16 October 2018 Speech by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres
Antonio Guterres is reminding us, that in our world of plenty, one person in nine does not have enough to eat and about 820 million people still suffer from hunger and most of them are women. Are you astonished 155 million children are chronically malnourished therefore will suffer the effects of stunting all their living years? And hunger is the cause of half the infant deaths worldwide! Well, I am. Is it intolerable? Yes, it is!
This is what the UN boss says,
“On World Food Day, let us commit to a world without hunger-a world in which every person has access to a healthy, nutritious diet. Zero tolerance is about joining forces. Countries and companies, institutions and individuals: we must each do our part towards sustainable foods systems.
Today we renew our commitment to uphold everyone’s fundamental right to food and to leave no one behind.
Today, have you made your commitment not to waste food, to educate yourself, family and friends about healthy, nutritious diet, and styles of good food and cooking styles? You and l have. What about recycling and less use of plastics? You and I have.
Well Done All.

Be Careful Be Joyful Be Peaceful
A retired midwife who enjoyed a satisfying career after years of rejecting it as a career choice. After becoming a Mum for the second time, somehow I just could not resist the call to midwifery any longer. Being part a family's important event gave more insight into how women, me included, both manage and sometimes muddle through pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood. Wisdom shared and gleaned from stories as well as healthy lifestyle tips and healthy recipes will hopefully answer your need. Someone once said to me that we have one body, one life, one voice so why not make it count. So here's to looking after all three and making a difference. Enjoy and I welcome any comments.
