Meat consumption has always been an important issue concerned by socio-economic researchers. Meat is recognized by most consumers for its ability to provide nutrients other than grains. As the economy improves, residents choose to consume more meat products. Of course, some consumers think that too much meat consumption is bad for their health, they will choose to reduce their consumption of meat products. Combined with the influence of regional culture and national customs, meat consumption varies greatly from country to country and even from country to country. So, is there a healthy standard for meat consumption? This issue has attracted the attention of all countries in the world and reached a consensus conclusion: it is suggested that the consumption structure of cereals and meat should be balanced and reasonable. Most countries have developed scientific dietary guidelines based on the health of their citizens. However, examine the dietary guidelines standards and the actual meat consumption of residents in various countries, it can be found that some residents have a serious shortage of meat consumption, and the meat consumption of other residents far exceeds the guideline recommendation. Many scientific studies have found that under consumption of meat and overconsumption of meat can cause a variety of diseases, the end result will not only consume the accumulation of personal wealth but also hinder the overall development of the country. So, how to guide the healthy development of meat consumption should be a special concern of governments and researchers. Given the importance of healthy meat consumption, this study reviews the influencing factors of meat consumption in recent years and the guiding policies of healthy meat consumption in various countries, this paper studies the healthy meat consumption of urban and rural residents in China, and puts forward the research plan and plan for the future research of this problem.
