Sustainability It is not sustainable that people are suffering ill-health caused by diet It is not sustainable to produce so much processed food for us in the ‘Western World’ It is not sustainable to consume the amount of animal produce that we currently do.

Studies have shown that what we eat can affect our ability to study Many students do not have their ‘5 a day’ or eat breakfast
