Livewell... for a healthy planet

The food we eat has a massive impact not just on our health but also on the health of our planet. If we adapt our diets slightly, we can make a positive difference for ourselves and for nature.

The 5 Livewell Principles

Five simple rules can make a difference to our health and the planet

1) Eat more plants - enjoy fruit and veg

2) Waste less food
- 33% of food planted worldwide is wasted

3) Eat less meat
- Meat, be it red or white, can be a tasty complement rather than just a centre piece of a good meal

4) Eat less processed food
- as they tend to be more resource intensive to produce and often contain high levels of sugar, fat and salt

5) Eat certified food - buy food that meets a credible certified standard
- like MSC for fish or RSPO for palm oil or RSPCA Freedom Foods for meat and eggs.
