Key message
Bad

Our health and the environment are directly linked. Food choices affect both the environment and human health. Slovenes consume too little of food that is beneficial to our health. We are eating too few vegetables, half of Slovenian adults eat unhealthy. Obesity is on the rise, both in the elderly and in children. However, Slovenes self-assess their health status as relatively good on average. Households with lower income self-assess their health slightly worse.

Maintaining a healthy natural environment is key to human health and well-being, adapting to climate change and successfully mitigating its effects, as well changing consumer patterns to achieve sustainable consumption.
