Food is hugely important. And yummy! Good food helps us to grow well and be active. It plays an important part in family and community life, whether that is eating dinner all together, celebrating a birthday or feasting with friends. Food can make us feel great. But the food we eat can have a big impact on our planet. Did you know that, globally, food systems account for about one quarter (25%) of all man-made greenhouse emissions? That’s a big contribution to climate change - more than global transport, and about the same as the production of electricity and heat.
