Healthy diets and sustainable food systems, in general, are among the key players to achieve sustainable planet and welfare of all people, and at the same time, to be in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, UN 2015). These food systems offer not only a way towards ending the hunger, but also enable healthier nations and less environmental pollution. A good representative of a sustainable food system and a healthy diet is the Mediterranean diet that is affordable and transferable even in the regions far from the Mediterranean basin. Mediterranean diet could be a solution to overcome the global syndemic, which is becoming an emerging problem for the whole planet. This study proposes Mediterranean Diet as an example of a healthy and sustainable diet that could be introduced to children and young generations from early stages of their lives for the welfare and better human health and socio-economic status, as well as a way to reduce the impact of food production on the climate change.
