The Dutch are lowering the red meat consumption

The Dutch are dropping part of their processed and red meat as the population is adopting a healthier lifestyle shows a study released by public health institute RIVM
The RIVM compared eating patterns between 2007 and 2010 with those between 2012 and 2016 and found processed and red meat consumption had dropped by 8%, reports Dutch News agency.
Also, the consumption of dairy products is lower than 10 years ago. Nevertheless, many people are still failing to meet the official guidelines for a good diet, mentioned the report. Just 16% of the Dutch meet the recommended level of 250 grams of vegetables a day and only 13% 200 grams of fruit. The latest recommendations for a healthy diet were published in 2016 by the Dutch dietary advice center Voedingcentrum.
