Fighting malnutrition with the help of vitamins

Staples like wheat and rice are not sufficient in fighting malnutrition since staples don't contain all the minerals and vitamins people need to be healthy, says the World Vegetable Center's Dyno Keatinge. DW: How can vegetables support the millennium development goals - especially eradicating hunger? Dyno Keatinge: Vegetable growing, vegetable selling, vegetable marketing is women's business in the developing world. And therefore anything we can do to help women improves women's health and improves women's empowerment. These are also important millennium development goals. And at the same time it helps with things like preventing child mortality. So much of what we do contributes in fact to all eight millennium goals. But a lot of people in the world, almost a billion, are really hungry at the moment. So wouldn't vegetables for them be something that's more of a luxury because they can't even afford rice?
