Knowledge for better food systems

What young people say about food

This report from the UK think tank Food Foundation summarises workshops held with over 300 schoolchildren from across the UK to discuss their understanding of and experiences with food insecurity and food poverty.

According to the report, young people want schools to consider price, portion size and dietary requirements in the food they offer and provide a dedicated teacher to deal with food poverty issues. They also want more realistic portrayals of food and mealtimes in adverts and on social media.

Region: 

Europe

Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering just over 10 million square kilometres or 6.8% of the global land area, but it is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of around 740 million people or about 11% of the world's population. Its climate is heavily affected by warm Atlantic currents that temper winters and summers on much of the continent. In the European Union, farmers represent only 4.7% of the working population, yet manage nearly half of its land area.
