Diet in a nutshell - a taste for life

The project 'Diet in a nutshell – a taste for life' is an initiative intended to stimulate the establishment of a range of dietary schemes in schools and institutions

Furthermore 'Diet in a nutshell – a taste for life' is  also intended to give the entire population access to the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration's knowledge of food via the new website http://www.altomkost.dk./

The establishment of dietary regimes in schools and institutions is to take place by helping such bodies to help themselves. An itinerant team from the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration is prepared to visit the individual schools and institutions, and a telephone hotline has been set up on which advice and guidance can be sought. 

The website addresses both the "Dane in the street" and food professionals. "Diet in a nutshell" summarises the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration's knowledge about healthy food and nutrition, and is also intended as the point under which we can bring together our knowledge of nutrition and disseminate it in a form in which it is comprehensible to all.

The website has several different functions, which allow you to measure your BMI reading, put together a meal and see what it contains in terms of energy and fat. There are quizzes and an entire section on the "joy of food". You will also find a lot of recipes to help you keep a healthier lifestyle.
