About the webinar:
Food-based dietary guidelines are typically developed with health promotion front of mind, but what about the health of the planet? In this webinar, Dr Gilly Hendrie will dive into how sustainability is addressed in food-based dietary guidelines across the globe. Gilly will also explore new modelling research on the EAT-Lancet Planetary Health Diet within the context of Australian dietary patterns, and compare this to the Australian Dietary Guidelines. The trade-offs between food, health and the environment that should be considered when promoting sustainable eating habits will also be highlighted, as Gilly provides her insights into what dietitians can do to help their clients eat a healthier, more sustainable diet.
