The December edition of the journal Nutrition Bulletin, published by the British Nutrition Foundation, examines the complex nutrition and health factors associated with the challenge of achieving a sustainable and secure food supply.
The issue, entitled ‘Achieving a Healthy Sustainable Diet: an Integrated Approach’ contains a series of papers presenting evidence and arguments from all sides of the sustainability debate. Its topics range from food production and supply, to consumption patterns and public health implications.

- Global food supply: a challenge for sustainable agriculture
- Sustainable consumption - UK Government activity
- A UK public health perspective: what is a healthy sustainable diet?
