This article focuses on the changing food consumption pattern in Sweden between 1960 and 2006, and the implications of those changes for sustainability. National statistical data on the consumption of different food groups such as meat, milk, dairy products, eggs, fruit, vegetables, cereal, potatoes and sugar were compared.

IVL-report C 181 Environmental implications of Swedish food consumption and dietary choices 7 2 Aims and Scope 2.1 Aims The aim of this study is to understand the implications of dietary choices for Swedish food consumption on a broad range of environmental impact categories. The study will
More specifically, the production of food is affected by climate change, due to its impacts on a multitude of key agricultural factors (Smith et al., 2007); on the other hand, food choices and proper food management can also have positive impacts on the mitigation of climate change (Carlsson-Kanyama, 1998, Geeraert, 2013).
An early study on land use and dietary patterns, conducted by Gerbens-Leenes et al. (2002), developed a methodology for the assessment of land required for food and showed, in combination with household data, the land use for the Dutch consumption pattern in 1990.
Given the policy and programmatic implications of FBDGs, the development and integration of recommendations that promote specific food practices and choices have been an obvious strategy for addressing sustainability, mainly in its nutrition and environment dimensions.

Sep 27, 2010 · 4. A brief discussion of the health impact of these food consumption trends. Having looked at the consumption patterns of foods and some of the drivers for the changing patterns observed, it is important to mention the potential implications to health in order to highlight the significant role that diet plays.
Eating more seasonal food is one proposal for moving towards more sustainable consumption patterns, based on the assumption that it could reduce the environmental impact of the diet. The aim of the present paper is to consider the implications of eating seasonal food on the different elements of sustainability (i.e. health, economics, society
Nov 03, 2016 · Fourteen sustainable dietary patterns were proposed: vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, replacing ruminant with monogastric meat, balanced energy intake, following healthy guidelines, Mediterranean diet, New Nordic diet, and meat reduction, with other sub-scenarios such as type of food supplemented by meat reduction, and healthy guidelines with further optimisation (Table 1).
value of key food crops under climate change. 5 Ensuring a safe operating space for humanity,6 therefore, requires shifts in what, how, and how much food is produced. Food production is driven by policy choices and consumer demand, among other factors. Developing policy that catalyses shifts to sustainable food consumption patterns,
food consumption patterns, dietary recommendations and diet-related health problems in Spain, France and Sweden. WWF chose the pilot countries because they represent a variety of diets in Europe and the different levels of ‘policy readiness’ for a change to more sustainable diets. We compare data about actual consumption in
To our knowledge, this study is the first analysis of any food pattern from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans with resolution at the level of individual foods used to derive the patterns (eg, chicken, broiled or baked, no added fat) as opposed to food types (eg, chicken) or groups (eg, proteins).
Eberle and Fels analyzed the environmental impacts of German food consumption and food losses. The losses made up between 11 and 17 % of the environmental impacts of in-house food consumption; for out-of-home food consumption they were even more important with 28 to 33 % losses, depending on the impact category.
