- Implementing barter/exchange approaches between sellers for getting goods and services at lower prices than market prices (wholesale rates or their buying rates) among themselves. It would raise the real income of a substantial number of people by decreasing payments for daily needs.
- It is very urgent to develop platforms/networks of end-users like university students to break down the nexus of middlemen as well as for getting foods like rice, fresh fruits, vegetables, etc. a lower price. These would improve the food intake patterns and nutritional status of the general people of Bangladesh.
- Providing the opportunities/choices (in govt or non-govt offices) to get unpaid leaves [partial or full of the day(s)] to mothers of newborn kids or women during menstrual cycles so that they would get enough time for caring for their baby or herself. Part-time employees may fulfill this position. As a result, total productivity would be the same, sometimes even better, by reducing maternal anxiety and stress of working women in Bangladesh or globally.
- A gift or intervention approach for a new mother: A rocker. It would help a mother to take care of her child easily by improving kids’ care and reducing the sufferings of both mothers and kids such as back pain, stress, anxiety, accidents, etc.
- Food bins to collect, sort, and display ready-to-eat edible waste foods from consumers as touched, partially touched, and untouched for restaurants, food vendors, and food shops. These foods may be collected and consumed by a vulnerable group of people who do not have purchasing power or are in need. As a result, food and nutrition security nationally and globally may be improved.
- Creating online selling facilities for excess and edible foods stored at home: This option would create opportunities to sell unnecessary foods to earn money. In addition, it would help people to get food at a lower price. Wastage would be reduced, and utilization of unused foods would be increased to support food and nutrition security nationally and globally. (April 28, 2023).
- Food for animals or poultry or fish from Raw food market wastes: A lot of edible but unacceptable to purchase from the perception of consumers are discarded in the markets daily such as partially rotten vegetables, portions of leafy or non-leafy vegetables, damaged or discolored items, etc. These are usually scattered while trading. Later those are collected as wastes and usually dumped. These could be collected and processed properly as needed by mixing, grinding, sorting, drying, and cooking to make processed foods for further use. Thus, we can get massive amounts of food that could be discarded as waste. (May 16, 2023)
- Panic or Stress-induced metabolites and Human Health. Animal products having harmful metabolites may cause non-communicable diseases such as cancer, nervous system disorders, etc. These may result from the exposure of an animal for the short, mid, or long term in an environment generating panic or stress on it.

- Vegetable and/ or fruit-based multilayer cake or pastry for individuals for increasing intake of both vegetables and fruits as well as controlling fat and sugar intake-especially in Bangladesh. (May 20, 2023)
- A weighing table or pad placed on the table complemented with a weighting chair or pad placed on the chair to assess the dietary intake of an individual (May 21, 2023)
- Reducing the cost of unnecessary medicines or drugs for having more nutritious foods and necessary care. (May 31, 2023)
