OJEDA SANCHEZ, Azucena; RANGEL YEPEZ, Caridad  y  MECALCO HERRERA, Cecilia. Current situation of feeding and social intervention in Mexico: A critical review. Rev. Mex. de trastor. aliment [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.2, pp.218-231.  Epub 14-Mar-2022. ISSN 2007-1523.

Adequate feeding is essential in maintaining a population healthy and with a quality of life. Social and economic conditions, as well as government policies, have an effect on eating habits worldwide. Mexico has a long history of implementing policies, as well as institutional programs, aimed at fighting hunger. Therefore, there has been an increase in the number of studies and interventions in Mexico. This paper describes current conditions of feeding interventions carried out in Mexico, specifically by universities. A systematic review of scientific articles was carried out in electronic platforms Scielo, Elsevier and Latindex with emphasis on 10 most recent years. Intersectoral policies and strategies focused on solving malnutrition are distant from local interventions and without an evaluation of its effects. Biomedical projects tend to focus on the individual and are prescriptive-normative. Social projects are informative with the objective on educating about health. On the other hand, Mexican universities mainly carry out exploratory and descriptive research and are limited in the promotion of healthy. Different sectors have carried out isolated efforts. A curative approach predominates over prevention and health promotion. Sociocultural approaches can enrich complexity and focalization.
