Finally, it’s not hard to start eating food that is healthier, better for the environment and better for your pocket… here are five good places to start, based on the WWF Livewell Principles:

1. Eat more plants!

Enjoy lots of delicious, seasonal fruit and vegetables – five or more a day. Affordable, tasty and good for you!
2. Waste less food

Incredibly, 1/3 of all food produced is never eaten. Cutting waste saves money and reduces our environmental footprint.
3. Quality not quantity

3. Quality not quantity

Meat and dairy are responsible for a high proportion of emissions. Reduce the amount you eat, and buy from trusted, high animal welfare suppliers.
4. Cook!

Enjoy cooking and eating food together, using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Start simple – ask around for recipes and share your favourites.
5. Know your food

Ask where your food comes from and how it was produced, get to know producers at local markets, and choose trusted labels like MSC for fish.
