In the Nordic regions great efforts have been made to focus on the health impacts of the dietary pattern, issuing guidelines for dietary composition and recommended intake of nutrients. These recommendations, The Nordic Nutrition Recommendations (NNR) forms the basis for the national dietary recommendations for the Nordic countries.
