British Dietetic Association Policy Statement on Sustainable Diets
This position paper from the British Dietetic Association (BDA) outlines the components of a sustainable diet and argues that the dietetic profession should be leading discussions on how our food behaviours can affect both health and the environment. The BDA feels that dietitians are in a strong position to combine healthy eating messages and sustainable diet advice, and support consumers to take action.
Note: This position paper refers to the British government’s Eatwell Guide. Dietary guidance in Canada should be based on Canada’s Food Guide.
