為什麼要進行這場革命? Why have a Day of Action?

 

為什麼要進行這場革命?
全球癡肥率自1980年以來錄得雙倍升幅。現時更是有史以來,首次發現超重比過輕奪去更多生命。每年超過五百萬人死於癡肥或飲食相關的疾病。我們必須改變現況。我們需要回到最基本,就從了解我們的食物的來源開始。我們需要成為有意識的社群並認識我們每日所選擇的食物。為了達到此目的,我們需要推行食物教育。

「為食起革命」旨在鼓勵大家多煮食。我們要為家人及朋友去選擇更好的食物。「為食起革命」歡迎任何人士參與,一起提供一些簡單的煮食方法及技巧去改善大眾的飲食。只要我們於選擇食物時作出小小改變,便足以改善我們和下一代的生活素質。今天全球約有4千2百萬名5歲以下的兒童患有癡肥問題,對此我們必須關注並作出改變。我們需要團結起來,形造更大迴響,為自己及別人的生活提供正面及持久的影響。「為食起革命」是一個喚起人類對食物問題關注的良機,並團結大眾的力量去影響學校,使學校為學生提供正確的食物教育。

 

Why have a Day of Action?
Worldwide, obesity has more than doubled since 1980. For the first time in history, being overweight is killing more people than being underweight, and every year more than 5 million people die from obesity or diet-related diseases. This has to change, and it’s down to us. We need to get back to basics and start thinking about where our food comes from. We need to become a conscious community and understand the food choices we make on a daily basis. We can do this by improving food education.

Encouraging people to cook from scratch at home is at the heart of this. We all have family and friends who could make better food choices. On Food Revolution Day we can work together to empower people with the skills to improve their diet. Making simple changes to our food choices will improve our quality of life and our children’s. Forty-two million children under five are already obese and we need to reverse this. Let’s make some noise, raise our voices together and have a lasting and positive impact on their lives and ours. Food Revolution Day is our opportunity to get the world to focus on food issues and rally our efforts to bring food education back into schools.
