Diet sustainability in Europe: achieving nutritional recommendations while reducing environmental impact

Achieving diet sustainability is a major challenge. Researchers at INRA, MS-Nutrition and Montpellier SupAgro studied the issue at a Europe scale. Nutritional recommendations call for reducing the intake of fats, sugars and alcohol, increasing the intake of fruit, vegetables and starchy foods, and decreasing the consumption of animal-based products in relation to plant-based ones. However, the particular changes to the animal product consumption will depend on a country’s dietary habits.
