Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Approximately 20% of global deaths are associated with poor diets, highlighting the importance of promoting healthy and sustainable diets and global food security. Healthy eating patterns that include whole grains, fruits and vegetables are associated with a reduced risk of chronic diseases that are rising globally such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Plant-based dietary patterns are strongly linked with the prevention and management of chronic non-communicable diseases and lower environmental impact. On the other hand, depending on the type and quantity consumed, some plant foods may not be sustainable or environmentally and nutritionally sound on a global level. The transition to healthier and environmentally sustainable food consumption is complex, as it is affected by a variety of health, socioeconomic, agricultural and environmental factors. More interdisciplinarity research is needed to resolve the complexities regarding the support of sustainable healthy diets and food production toward both chronic disease prevention and environmental benefits.

This Special Issue encourages the submission of the latest research regarding technological, methodological and dietary strategies supporting sustainable healthy eating patterns for chronic disease management and prevention, particularly in the context of environmental impacts. We invite authors to contribute original research papers, as well as reviews (i.e., meta-analyses, systematic, scoping and narrative reviews).
