The AJP advocates a plant based diet free of all products derived from animals.
The current demand for animal products in Australia needs to shift to lessen the impacts on individual animals, human health and the planet; education and promotional action needs to occur to bring about a higher uptake of a plant based diet. Education can help people understand the true cost of an animal based diet and strive for individual change.
The AJP believes that many people already find modern animal agriculture unacceptable; and our proposals for reform are covered in our farming policy.
However, understanding a problem, knowing the solution, and effecting that solution are three separate activities. Our education policy focuses on teaching people to prepare delicious and healthy meals using only plant based ingredients.
- To expand school kitchen garden programs.
- To introduce plant based cooking and food preparation lessons
- To introduce plant based nutrition lessons from an early age in schools.
