This new edition of the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations makes a powerful link between healthy people and a healthy planet. We must work to promote and protect both. Focusing only on one could result in nutritionally inadequate diets or large environmental impacts.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization

NNR2023 is an impressive piece of work. The key information is very accessible, and covers a wide range of topics, some not considered before despite being very important. The results of the considerable amount of work that has gone into this report will be very informative for a wide range of stakeholders and provides a great foundation for evidence-based policymaking. Now it needs to be adopted into policy.
Professor Susan Fairweather-Tait, Norwich Medical School, UK, Member of expert committees on nutrient requirements for FAO, WHO, EFSA and UK health authorities

The Nordic Nutrition Recommendations forms an important scientific basis for Sweden’s dietary guidelines as well as our front-of-pack labelling “the Keyhole”. The NNR impacts our food choices in very concrete ways by guiding the composition of school meals and other public meals, as well as the Swedish citizens to make healthy and sustainable food choices.
Annica Sohlström, Director-General, Swedish Food Agency

NNR2023 is really a tremendous amount of work and well done. I especially appreciate the inclusion of all of the analytic frameworks, this adds to the transparency of the work. This will be a huge resource for authorities across the world undertaking development of Food based dietary guidelines. The stepwise consideration of health and environment is a commendable addition to the many considerations when making dietary guidelines.
