Eating Better and Friends of the Earth kicked off 2017 by hosting a lively debate at the Oxford Real Farming Conference.
What is a healthy, sustainable diet? Sometimes it can seem the answer is far from straightforward, but it shouldn't be! We've come together with over 20 leading NGOs to support the UK government's official healthy eating advice, the Eatwell Guide. For our health and planet, advice to eat more plants is hugely important.
With a new London Mayor coming into post after the elections on the 5th May, what should be their responsibility for healthier sustainable food?
Ahead of next month's parliamentary elections, Bella Crowe of the Scottish Food Coalition says a transformation of Scotland’s Food Policy is urgently needed.
New dietary guidance from the Netherlands advises cutting back on meat and enjoying more vegetables and plant-based foods for health and sustainability.
The UK government has updated its official dietary guidelines. The newly revised EatWell Guide recommends that people eat more plants, get more of their protein from beans and pulses and cut down on processed and red meat. It's a good step forward towards encouraging healthy, sustainable diets.
Changing the way we eat is key to preventing dangerous climate change and meeting the commitments of the Paris Agreement. With the launch of our policy recommendations we call on governments to take urgent action on the meat in our diets, for the sake of our health and the planet.
