How food choices can affect our health

Did you know that it’s possible eat healthy and at the same time enjoy delicious food? Did you know that food plays a very important role in the maintenance of our health and even in recovery? How much weight do you give to nutrition labels when choosing a food? How much time do you spend on buying and preparing your food, how much do you know about the food you eat? How many products that have been highly industrially processed, rich in sugars and unhealthy fats enter your diet?

Slow Food is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and conscious consumer behaviors. Our position on Food and Health can be summarized as follows:  increase the consumption of fresh food, locally sourced, preferably organic, biodynamic or with integrated pest control, not overly processed; limits to sugar consumption, refined flours, meat and preferring vegetables and legumes; give the right time to meals, and learn to read and understand labels.
