• Food production, distribution and consumption is a fundamental determinant of health resilience. • Human, animal and environmental health are systemically entwined, and this relationship needs to be captured in health-related policies. Systemic thinking is necessary to understand the spillover impacts of food systems - related policies into the health dimension. • The One Health and the agroecological approaches offer relevant frameworks to understand the food-health nexus and its implications in terms of health policy design. • Policies based on the agroecological principles can drive the food systems and health transformation towards resilience, thanks to their capacity to reconcile the economic, environmental and social dimensions of sustainability. • Five key areas of the food-health nexus should be considered: food insecurity, unhealthy dietary patterns, foodborne disease, environmental contamination and occupational hazards.
