In Jan. 2019 the EAT-Lancet Commission report published the world's first global reference diet, designed to guide food systems towards healthier and more environmentally sustainable consumption patterns.  The report aimed to help guide public policy and private sector activity towards reduced intake of red meat and other potentially harmful foods in higher-income countries, and also increased intake of fruits and vegetables, leguminous grains and other potentially beneficial foods. 

A new study published in November 2019 uses data on food prices, nutrient composition and human requirements to compare the cost of meeting EAT-Lancet targets to the cost of nutrient adequacy, and compares those diet costs to household income and expenditure in every country of the world. This webinar will discuss implications of that study for food systems research, food policy and the agriculture, nutrition and health agenda of ANH Academy members.

Please join the conversation, for what promises to be an illuminating discussion.
