Future-proof and sustainable healthy diets based on current eating patterns of adults in the Netherlands

Presentation by Marcelo Tyszler at LEAP Conference 2020

Food systems have a significant impact on climate change. To keep global warming below 1.5 °C, as recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), eating patterns must change. However, future diets should also satisfy nutritional requirements and respect cultural acceptability and can therefore best be modeled on national level. Our colleagues Marcelo Tyszler, Roline Broekema and Hans Blonk investigated together with a group of researchers what a future-proof and sustainable healthy diet could look like for the Netherlands. There findings are published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

On 8 December 2020 Marcelo gave a presentation at the LEAP Conference 2020 to present this study. You can find the video on the left.
