(ANSA) – Roma, November 15 – Senators on Thursday presented
a bill aiming to promote and give value to the traditional
Mediterranean diet that is at the heart of much Italian cuisine.
The proposed legislation includes making November 16 a
national day dedicated to the nutritional recommendation based
on a high consumption of olive oil, unrefined cereals, fresh
fruit and vegetables and legumes, a moderate consumption of fish
and dairy products and a low consumption of meat and meat
products.
November 16 is the day in 2010 on which the Paris-based
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation
(UNESCO) inscribed the Mediterranean diet on its intangible
cultural heritage list on the request of Italy, Greece, Spain
and Morocco.
The bill also provides for a special logo designating
products typical of the acclaimed dietary regime and a special
committee for its defence and promotion, chaired by the
agriculture minister and including representatives of the
ministries of health, culture, foreign affairs, education and
the environment.
The proposed legislation also aims to promote the
Mediterranean diet in school canteens.
