Abstract

One of the most important aspects of our lives is food. It intertwines with our social life, history, the education that we have received and our style of life. The relationship between food and ourselves is an ecological one. It is always an ecological relationship wherever and whenever it would be. Thus, eating and supplying food would be considered a way in which we directly relate to living things that share the planet with us. To this end is important, from a very early age, to develop food education strictly connected with habits of social sustainability. We describe activities involving the history of food and the knowledge of the foods of other peoples. To achieve a really sustainable nutrition we must recognize the intrinsic value of all living species, including those that we eat. These are a full part of life on our planet and we must properly maintain their biodiversity. In addition, traditional eating habits are very much part of cultural identity and are historically and ecologically connected with local environment. Psychological and relational aspects of feeding the planet must not become the shop window in which we see only our wellness without considering that of the future generations.
