A High Price to Pay: the impact of rising and volatile food prices on children’s nutrition and food security

We are approaching a new norm of high and volatile global food prices. This is pushing nutritious foods out of the reach of poor families. 'A High Price to Pay' puts forward a series of recommendations to address the impact of high and volatile food prices on poor families: • countries with high malnutrition should invest in social protection and build up food stocks • the EU should drop its biofuel mandate – a key factor pushing up food prices • food-exporting countries must coordinate to prevent food-price volatility.
