The Australian Guide to healthy eating

This blog by Daniel Tan, Senior Lecturer in Agriculture at University of Sydney, discusses how one might eat both healthy and sustainably.

In it, Daniel highlights the new Australian Guide to healthy eating. The guide recommends eating a variety of nutritious foods including vegetables, fruit, grain and lean meat to achieve a balanced healthy diet. Furthermore it indicates the need to increase the consumption of cereals, legumes, vegetables and fruit, while consuming meat, fish and dairy products in lesser quantities.

The blog further discusses the global impacts of our diets and also highlights the Double Pyramid developed by the Barilla Centre for Food and Nutrition which identifies synergies between food that is good for health and for the environment.
