New Nordic Diet

New Nordic Diet – WHO/Europe report

7 May 2018

WHO/Europe has launched a new Health Evidence Network Synthesis Report exploring the implementation and effectiveness of policies based on the New Nordic and Mediterranean diets. The New Nordic diet comprises foods traditionally sourced in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Staple components of the New Nordic diet include berries and fruits, fatty fish, lean fish, legumes, vegetables and whole grain cereals. The New Nordic diet is predominantly plant based and locally sourced, thus ensuring more environmentally friendly production with reduced waste when consumed within the Nordic region. In the OFSP we use the principles of the New Nordic diet (along with the Mediterranean diet) to inspire others to transform current unhealthy and unsustainable diets to more health promoting and sustainable diets.
