Dr Reynold’s research published last year, investigated the feasibility of eating sustainably across different income groups. The research clearly demonstrated that all income groups can afford to consume a diet that is better for health and planet. Additionally, the study showed that no foods currently consumed need to be excluded. Individuals simply need to shift their current eating habits to improve the quality and quantity of plant food intakes whilst moderating meat and dairy. This makes for a more practical and realistic target for UK individuals to achieve.
The expert interview with Dr Reynolds provides further insights into the original study bringing more clarity to the methodology, how different income groups need to shift towards more sustainable diets, what this means for public health messages as well as where further research is needed.
Plus, insights beyond the publication…
The expert interview takes us beyond the study findings and explores Dr Reynolds' top tips for consumers, how different cooking methods impact on our carbon footprint and current investigations into consumer perceptions of how different foods impact on our carbon footprint.
