Global Food Security, an alliance of the UK’s main public funders of food related research, has published a report highlighting 8 principles of healthy and sustainable eating patterns and concluded that pro-environmental diets were clearly compatible with healthy diets.

The eight principles are:

  • eat a varied balanced diet,
  • eat more plant based foods,
  • value your food and don’t waste it,
  • choose sustainable fish,
  • moderate your meat intake,
  • include milk and dairy products and where possible plant based alternatives,
  • drink tap water
  • eat fewer foods high in fat sugar and salt.
