Sustainable food is one of the 8 priorities our network focuses on. Together with our members and partners, we want to make sustainable agriculture and food supply a reality. That includes respect for the environment, fair working conditions at every step of the chain and healthy, high-quality products.
Only 7% of our children eat vegetables and fruit on a daily basis, while 53% consume snacks and sugary drinks every day. High time for a change? We want to make sure our children:
- have access to sustainable food at school
- are aware of what a healthy and sustainable life style looks like, so they form long-lasting healthy eating habits
Schools are ideal places to encourage and teach children about healthy eating habits from an early age. They have an important role to play in the transition to a healthy and sustainable food system. We want to support schools in that role.
