Healthy diets

Apart from providing consumers with nutritious, healthy and safe food, consumer behaviour with regard to a healthy diet and sufficient physical exercise also needs to be taken into account.

Research funding and promotion aim at providing a scientific background about what makes a healthy diet, while at the same time taking into account emerging social and economic trends in our society.

Issues relating to consumers’ dietary behaviour and sustainable consumption and to the provision of healthy food in sufficient quantities are focused on.

On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture the BLE manages various research, development and demonstration projects relating to a healthy diet.
