Publication: 'Achieving a Healthy Sustainable Diet: An Integrated Approach’ – a series of papers published in the Nutrition Bulletin

The issue, entitled ‘Achieving a Healthy Sustainable Diet: an Integrated Approach’ contains a series of papers presenting evidence and arguments from all sides of the sustainability debate. Its topics range from food production and supply, to consumption patterns and public health implications.

  • Global food supply: a challenge for sustainable agriculture
  • Sustainable consumption - UK Government activity
  • A UK public health perspective: what is a healthy sustainable diet?
  • Challenges and opportunities for sustainable livestock production in the UK
  • Increasing fish consumption for better health - are we being advised to eat more of an inherently unsustainable protein?
  • Securing a sustainable British horticulture industry
  • Does consuming seasonal foods benefit the environment? Insights from recent research
