CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In conversation with Dr Christian J Reynolds ahead of Earth Day 2020 on his new award-winning research and one of the perceived barriers to eating a healthy and sustainable diet: namely affordability.


CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:

  • Understand how healthy and sustainable diets are linked, and how to shift dietary patterns towards these linked outcomes
  • Understand the financial costs associated with healthy and sustainable diets, and how cost is not the barrier we think it is to dietary transition
  • Understand that we do not need widespread dietary change, that we can keep all current foods consumed in a healthy sustainable diet, instead we need to change the amounts of foods that we eat. Some we need to reduce to 35% of current rates, while others we need to double current levels of consumption
  • That we can use dietary change to lead to affordable, healthy and sustainable diets that meet 2030 climate change carbon reduction targets. However, 2050 targets need additional whole food system changeThat we can use dietary change to lead to affordable, healthy and sustainable diets that meet 2030 climate change carbon reduction targets. However, 2050 targets need additional whole food system change

BE ABLE TO:

  • Talk about trade-offs between health, cost, and sustainability for different dietary patterns
  • Think more broadly about interplays between nutrition, public health policy, and the wider food system
