Sustainable Nutrition

Nourishing Americans and the world is critical. To feed the growing population, it’s important to make sure that food is grown and produced with sustainable practices that will foster the health of people and the planet. These concerns are not new, but are front and center for health professionals who are connecting emerging research to eating patterns, environmental sustainability, accessibility and affordability to help provide guidance on what makes up a “sustainable diet.”
