Healthy diet

Consumers in Germany have a wide range of high quality and healthy foods to choose from. Food is precious and can taste wonderful. Healthy eating is a pleasure – and a properly balanced diet is the best recipe for maintaining optimum health.

Nutrition and physical activity are inherently linked. If you lead a physically active life, you consume more energy. With the IN FORM initiative, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture promotes healthy living. IN FORM pools together projects on healthy lifestyles from across Germany and provides information on good dietary practices for all spheres of life – from nutrition for children at school and kindergarten, to balanced diets for women during pregnancy, people at work and the elderly.
