Definition of Food Sustainability:
Sustain means to hold something. Sustainability means capable of being maintained over the long term and meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. (From ADA Position Statement 2007 J Am Diet Assoc. 2007;107:1033-1043)
Sustainability recognizes the interdependence of people, culture, economy in both urbanized and rural environments. Foods that are "closer to nature" have a lower impact on the environment.
What is eating sustainably? Meals composed of foods that contribute to human health and also encourage the sustainability of food production.
