Food is one of the most important thing in the country’s development. Good food will increase the quality of human life in the country automatically. Indonesia as a development country frequently facing the food problems, such as starvation and the lack of nutrition. Recently, the death caused by starvation and lack of nutrition especially for children is often informed in the news programs. Ironically, it happens mostly in the area which has a numerous natural sources. Unfortunately, the problems are caused by the low level of welfare, less of knowledge of nutrition in our society, and careless about healthy life style, not because of the incapability to provide food from Indonesia’s nature. Since Indonesia has a various kind of food that can fulfill the need of its citizen.
The government plays an important role to solve those problems. There are a lot of effort that have been done, such as provide inexpensive rice called raskin for the poor society and the nutrient education. However, the government still has not found the right solution yet. Support and cooperation from the entire field that related with citizen’s welfare are needed to fix this condition.

With NSPC, we expect the government and the academic will give a more concern to a better food development. Increasing the awareness from all people about healthy food and healthy life is essential too. Thus can make a better solution for this country and make a better life to the society.
