The vital role that healthy eating and exercise play in our lives was at the heart of the discussion organized by the Institute of Public Health (IPH) and the Center of Excellence in Food, Tourism & Leisure (CoEFTL) of The American College of Greece, entitled “Healthy Eating in Modern Greece” on February 16. Participants discussed how Greeks understand the meaning and practice of “healthy eating” and how informed they are about the nutritional value of food.

Dr. Panagiotis Behrakis, Executive Director of the IPH, was the discussion moderator. Dr. Athanasios Krystallis, the Executive Director of the CoEFTL presented the findings of a national consumer survey conducted from December 1-15, 2021. The survey was conducted online, in collaboration with the Hellenic Research House (HRH), on a representative sample of 510 Greek men and women between 18-65 years old.
