A total of 62% of Norwegians surveyed in the national public health survey have made changes to have a more sustainable diet with a lower environmental impact.
A total of 9,000 people participated in the survey, which will provide an overview of the population’s health, well-being, and living habits.
The answers in the survey will not be presented until April, but the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) already stated that it seems that sustainability has become a hot topic when it comes to diet.
As many as 62% of those surveyed answered that they had made changes in their diet over the past three years in order to have a more sustainable diet with a lower environmental impact, Marianne Hope Abel at the Department of Chronic Diseases and Aging at the FHI said.
Based on the answers in the survey, there are also many indications that Norwegians have a way to follow the authorities’ dietary advice.
The FHI noted that most people, for example, should easily double their intake of fruit and vegetables.
“At the same time, we see that a very high proportion of the population takes supplements. As many as 80% answered that they use supplements in one form or another,” Abel added.
