    The best summer bread recipes, from cherry focaccia to a tomato and basil twist

    summer bread – Haarala Hamilton Bread is fundamental, the most basic food in many cultures, hallowed in some (if a piece of bread falls to the floor in Morocco, it’s retrieved and kissed). It’s cheap to make, filling and is used as either plate or container for other foods – think of flatbreads, sandwiches and wraps. Access to it is almost a right. Its scarcity contributed to the French revolution and its removal – in Syria, the Assad regime has deliberately bombed bakeries – is a weapon of war. In the UK, jam sandwiches have provided sustenance for the working

    Four reasons the UK government’s obesity strategy may not work for everyone

    One of the government’s strategies is to promote increased physical activity. Kletr/ Shutterstock COVID-19 has affected a disproportionate number of people with obesity in the UK.

    Five ways to reboot the global food economy to make it healthier for all

    Shutterstock.com COVID-19 has shown how damaging ill-health can be for the economy. But it has also shown how measures that benefit health (lockdowns) can be seen as bad economic prosperity. A similar paradox is at the heart of promoting better diets. Poor diet is the world’s leading cause of ill-health. Malnutrition – from undernutrition to obesity – affects at least one-third of the global population. It’s an issue of inequality, too: diet-related challenges disproportionately affect poorer people, making the economic challenge even greater. Poor nutrition also costs businesses dearly. A recent report by research institute Chatham House
