Plates, pyramids and planet – Developments in national healthy and sustainable dietary guidelines: a state of play assessment

20 May 2016

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) at the University of Oxford have published a new report which evaluates government-issued food-based dietary guidelines from across the globe, looking in particular at whether they make links to environmental sustainability as well as personal health.

The report highlights instances of forward thinking governments who are taking the lead in developing integrated guidance; examines what these guidelines say; identifies common messages; and considers whether and how their approaches could be replicated elsewhere.

It looks both at successes and at failures – where attempts to provide integrated guidance have failed, and why. It concludes with a series of suggestions for ways forward.
