    take up the call for

    Hello.

    Newspapers, magazines, and TV have all taken up the call for a healthier diet.

    What is the meaning of the phrase in blue? Does it mean to be up for a healthy diet?

    Thank you.

    It means that they are promoting/calling for a healthier diet.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Teechar, this sentence is taken from a text named "Out of the frying pan" (Business Result, Advanced level).

    Ksenia, always cite the source of your quotes, please, and the author, if known.
