Food and our Planet – What’s the link?
Diets are the major link between our health and environmental impact; relevant for all food cultures and production systems across the world. Simply put, an unhealthy diet is bad for the environment too. With a growing global population which is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050 it’s important we all start to make positive changes to our diets and lifestyles today.
Switching to a healthy diet can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by around 25%
What’s a healthy sustainable diet?
A healthy, balanced diet is better for you and better for the planet. There’s no one food or drink that provides all the goodness and nutrients our bodies need, which is why single foods on their own are not ‘good’ or ‘bad’ – the key is how we combined them together into a balanced diet.
So, what does a healthy more sustainable diet look like?
