The Sixth Edition of the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations (NNR2023) is the newest collaboration between Nordic researchers, written over a period of four years and used to determine national dietary guidelines in Baltic and Nordic countries. The report has been ongoing since the 1980s, with the last published in 2012. This edition of the report is the first to take into account environmental factors and it demonstrates the synergies between a healthy diet and one that is low in environmental emissions.
The report advocates a primarily plant-based diet, high in fruit, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. It also recommends increased consumption of fish and nuts and significant reductions in meat, alcohol and processed foods with high levels of fat, sugar and salt.
