Food and Nutrition Bulletin
Volume 9, Number 2,
June 1987

"From time to time the Food and Nutrition Bulletin has emphasized special nutrition-related issues of importance to developing countries that have been relatively neglected. Two of these, intrahousehold food distribution and household food production, were included in recent special issues. The current issue is devoted primarily to articles on another important and neglected topic, the relationship between food and the possibility and cost of producing and processing it."
