A food system is the link between agriculture, the food supply chain, and nutrition. It starts with healthy soils and ends with healthy bodies. Healthy soil produces more nutritious fruits, vegetables, and grains. When animal feed comes from healthy soil, the meat, milk, and eggs from those animals are more nutrient-rich as well. Thus, the health of our land and the sustainability of our food system determine the health of our bodies.

Our food system is often organised in a way that does not provide safety, sustainability, or health. We may not be aware of problems of our food system when the things we eat are produced far away. Still, we have to ask questions. Is agriculture sustainable? Does the farmer use compost or chemicals? Do the chickens live in small cages, or have enough room to move? It is difficult to answer such questions when food comes in packages from far away.

Through our ‘Healthy Food Campaign' we aim to show you that eating habits matter. Eating healthy food has benefits not only for you but in the larger scale as well. In our online campaign we encourage you to change some eating habits by giving examples of how you can eat in a more healthy way and thus positively influence your natural surrounding at the same time.

 

There are many ways how each of us can contribute to improvement of the environmental situation. Why not by paying more attention to what we eat?

 

You can make the change, start from your plate!
