With the use of the MedDiet tools and the contribution of trained promoters from local authorities, 45 pilot projects have already been implemented involving 15.000 consumers. Each pilot project has been developed on one of the following specific objectives:
"the Mediterranean diet (from the Greek diaita, or way of life) encompasses more than just food. It promotes social interaction, since communal meals are the cornerstone of social customs and festive events. It has given rise to a considerable body of knowledge, songs, maxims, tales and legends"
The Mediterranean Diet, recognized by UNESCO as a cultural heritage of humanity
MedDiet education activities
Thinking that Local Authorities are key players in stimulating the local economy and helping consumers to acquire knowledge, skills and aptitudes for greater adherence to the Mediterranean Diet, a Scientific Committee has designed useful Guidelines and supporting material. These tools allow staffs of local authorities to acquire knowledge and competences on how to implement initiatives promoting Mediterranean Diet in their territories.
