How can all people on Earth have enough to eat without our planet being destroyed? The Planetary Health Diet, a sustainable dietary concept, provides an answer to this question.

It recommends eating more plant-based and less animal products, focussing on fruit and vegetables, pulses and nuts. According to the EAT-Lancet Commission, this type of food would need to be consumed twice as much, meat and sugar half as much. 

The commission is made up of 37 scientists from various fields and 16 different countries, including climatologists and nutritionists. The scientists’ goal was to create a scientific basis needed for a global change in our nutritional system. This has resulted in a diet which could equally protect the health of both people and our planet.

Planetary Health Diet 17th to 21st January 2022
An overview of all our specials

66.6% of our canteens’ menus is vegan or vegetarian. This reduces the release of emissions and protects our environment.

During this week, we will be serving dishes which are put together according to the concept of the Planetary Health Diet.
