Provincial governments across China are beginning to set up food and nutrition departments in an effort to strengthen food safety and raise nutrition levels, Xinhua reports.

Six provinces, including Sichuan and Liaoning, are now preparing to set up their own food and nutrition departments.

Some people suffer from malnutrition and some from over-nutrition. It is imperative to guide food development and nutrition improvement."
