This chapter reiterates the major themes and findings from the book and points to the need for further research on food policy issues. It argues that with respect to the design of food and health policies, the demarcations between disciplines such as economics, nutrition, psychology, epidemiology, and public health are superficial and may even be counter-productive. Multi-disciplinary research can narrow the differences between disciplines, provided that researchers agree on a set of assumptions that reflect salient aspects of the problems under study. Multi-disciplinary teams are an efficient way of conducting and disseminating research for the design of food and health policies.

Keywords:   nutrition, diet, food policy, child health, fertility, obesity, labour productivity, multi-disciplinary research
