About the webinar:

In contrast to the 2013 Australian Dietary Guidelines which recommend regular consumption of dairy products, global sustainability recommendations like the EAT-Lancet Commission suggest animal-based foods, such as dairy, should be minimised due to environmental concerns. In this webinar, Dr Brad Ridoutt tackles the latest evidence supporting the role of dairy in a healthy, sustainable diet. Can dairy foods be a part of a healthy, sustainable eating pattern? And are catchy messages about plant-based diets and greenhouse gas emissions worth their salt? Tune in to find out!


Key learning outcomes:

  • Understand the role of milk, cheese and yoghurt in a healthy, sustainable diet
  • Understand how sustainable dietary choices are evaluated and assessed
  • Understand the complexity of assessing and defining a healthy, sustainable diet and the potential for research design to influence sustainable diet research findings
