New Nordic dietary guidelines


For the first time, the guidelines have taken into account the impact of the food we eat on both our health and the environment. The result? We need to eat more plants and less meat. 

  • 500-800 grams per day of vegetables, fruits and berries; Minimum 90 grams of whole grains per day; Baked or boiled potatoes with a low-salt content (limit your consumption of deep-fried potatoes); 20-30 grams of nuts and seeds daily; Legumes;
  • 450 grams per week of fish; Max. 350 grams of red meat per week; Lower the consumption of white meat (chicken); 350-500 mil. milk and dairy products daily; moderate consumption of eggs; 
  • 25 grams of vegetable oil per day; Limit the use of butter and tropical oils; Limit the intake of sweets and other sugary foods; Moderate intake of fruit juice; 
  • Alcohol should be consumed in small amounts, as there is no safe limit.
