Iceland. Sounds exotic, doesn’t it?
I’m in Reykjavik for the Nordic Nutrition Conference, together with representatives from the National Food Agencies in all the Nordic countries. Basically the people responsible for the official nutritional guidelines. This conference is held every four years… like the Olympics!
On the program is a lot of talk about obesity. And tomorrow we’ll get a preview of the new Nordic Nutrition Recommendations – NNR 2012, set to replace NNR 2004. Exciting. I’m optimistic that we’ll see a baby step or two in the right direction.
