Abstract

Food security is an issue that should concern any realistic and honest Nigerian. Great fears have been expressed on the fate of our Agriculture in rural areas and its consequences on productivity, poverty alleviation and health of the people. This paper examines the concept of food security and healthy living. It highlighted the situation of food production in Nigeria, bottlenecks to food security in Nigeria and its effects on the nation. The paper advocates the use of extension service in the rural areas, encouraging women full participation in food production, provision of modern storage facilities in rural areas, linking rural farmers to viable farm credit facilities among others as measures that would promote food security in Nigeria.
