Educating children and young adults about the importance of having a balanced diet and getting enough exercise is key to encouraging them to lead healthy lifestyles. A balanced diet is about getting into the habit of consuming the food needed to stay healthy. This means eating a wide variety of agricultural products in adequate proportions in order to achieve and maintain wellbeing, vitality and high living standards. For example, the widely known food pyramid illustrates the essential role that agricultural products play when building a balanced diet. In this regard, we believe that the consumption of livestock products, respecting WHO recommendations, is part of such a balanced diet.
