Sustainable healthy food

Welcome to our brand new hub for resources about sustainable and healthy food. New resources will be coming very soon!

Sustainability and food

During 2024, we will be launching a suite of resources to support teaching and learning around sustainable, healthy food.

Sustainable food is good for the planet and for us. This takes into account not only the environment, but also nutrition, and socio-economic factors such as affordability and accessibility.

Check back soon for more resources!

If you want to be the first to hear about new resources launching here and elsewhere on Food - a fact of life head to our homepage and sign up for Education News for alerts.
