A ONE HEALTH APPROACH TO FOOD - THE DOUBLE PYRAMID CONNECTING FOOD CULTURE, HEALTH AND CLIMATE

Food affects every aspect of our life: from health and longevity, well-being, to the condition and state of environmental resources, socio-economic development, culture and social stability. Today, we face the major challenge of resetting food systems from farm to fork, as they are currently failing to provide adequate and equitable food for all, while posing an unsustainable burden on ecosystems and natural resources. Health and the environment need to be considered together when addressing food systems from farm to fork.

The Barilla Foundation has used the latest evidence on food, health and the environment to devise the Double Pyramid model.

By placing the Health and Climate Pyramids side-by-side, the Double Pyramid gives a simple and direct illustration of what a balanced, healthy and sustainable diet looks like. This model aims to encourage the adoption of eating styles that are both healthy for humans and respectful of the planet, reducing the impact of food choices on the environment and climate change.
