The British Dietetic Association’s Sustainable September is back for a second year with a focus on how dietetic practice can make a difference to individual and planetary health at the same time.
The BDA has been sharing examples details on why food (and dietitians) are so important in combating the climate crisis, how they can embed environmental sustainability into practice, sharing member success stories and considering what we can all do next.
They are sharing excerpts from their One Blue Dot toolkit for nutrition experts, demonstrating once again how a healthy diet based on Eatwell Guide recommendations is a sustainable diet.
BDA members have been involved across the month and you can read more across the BDA social media channels using #BDASustainableSeptember or look at the month-long calendar https://www.bda.uk.com/news-campaigns/campaigns/one-blue-dot/sustainable-september.html
Are you interested in learning more about the environmental impact of food?
The FrieslandCampina Institute has developed the sustainable diets e-learning module for nutrition and health professionals. This e-learning covers the composition of a more sustainable and healthy diet, the different dimensions of sustainable diets, the role of dairy, diet modelling approaches and more.
The participant will learn:
- the environmental impact of food,
- the dimensions of a sustainable diet,
- about the role of dairy in a sustainable diet,
- about diet modelling approaches for designing sustainable diets,
- what a more sustainable diet would look like.
The e-learning is endorsed for CPD by the BDA. Visit our e-learnings page.
