Recommendations for people on healthy and sustainable diets

The Double Pyramid on Food and the Environment

1. FOOD PYRAMID

CHOOSE MAINLY HEALTHY PLANT-BASED FOOD, to promote your health and reduce environmental impact.

Sustainable diets are those diets with low environmental impacts, which contribute to food and nutrition security and to healthy life for present and future generations. Sustainable diets are protective and respectful of biodiversity and ecosystems, culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair and affordable; nutritionally adequate, safe and healthy; while optimizing natural and human resources*. Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) developed the model of the Double Pyramid on Food and Environment to illustrate the relationship between a healthy diet and environmental impact. The model presents two pyramids. The first is the Food Pyramid based on the Mediterranean Diet. The second one is inverted and reclassifies foods according to their environmental impact, with most resource-demanding foods placed at the top.

EAT A VARIETY OF FOOD: eating many different foods helps maintain health and wellness, with an interesting diet and colorful plates.

3. ENJOY 5 PORTIONS OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES DAILY, including them at most meals and snacks.

CHOOSE SEASONAL AND LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCTS. Find out the seasonal calendar for fruit and vegetables that grow in your area.

USE FRESH INGREDIENTS whenever possible, to reduce unnecessary packaging waste. Out of home, prefer places that serve freshly made meals.

REDUCE THE CONSUMPTION OF RED AND PROCESSED MEAT, enjoying other plant-based sources of proteins such as legumes and nuts.
