"To make unhealthy eating a luxury and not unhealthy, as it has happened…In Greece we have forgotten to do what the world scientific community urges the rest of the world to do in its diet, like us Mediterranean peoples, given the coordinates of place and seasonality. " mentioned among others in Athens 984 the person in charge of the Greenpeace nutrition campaign, Elena Danali.

Speaking pMargarita Mytilineou stressed the importance of enriching the daily diet with legumes, fruits and vegetables, in accordance with the requirements of the Mediterranean tradition, while noting the need to limit the consumption of meat and dairy products.

"The international scientific community in thorough studies, such as the one recently published in the prestigious medical journal Lancet, comes to the same conclusion, both from an environmental and health point of view, about the multiple benefits of a real Mediterranean diet, urging people to like the Greeks.
So, it's worth taking a closer look at what we eat each day. To see if it is in line with the principles of proper nutrition and otherwise return to it…
It is necessary to include in the diet of children and adults fruits, vegetables and legumes to better hydrate the body and improve the functioning of the digestive system. he stressed.

However, as Ms. Danali points out, the quality of the products that come on our plate is not independent of the overall agricultural policy and the prioritization of funding at both national and European level.

And he explains "If we want to invest more resources, policies and actions in more and better quality fruits and vegetables, with fewer pesticides, we need to take responsibility and take action. If politics is not pressured by society, it will not do it on its own and industry will do it. Thus, the responsibility of connecting with the food that enters our plate and the policies that affect it returns to the citizens. Through our involvement, with signatures and requests, what is happening today can change. To make the Mediterranean diet the new lifestyle, the mainstream, the trend ".
