Nutrition is one of the major factors affecting our health and wellbeing. That’s why it’s worth paying attention to.

In the simplest terms, nutrition refers to the foods and drinks we consume and their effect on our health. In reality nutrition covers much more, such as how our wellbeing and food choices are affected by our food environment (food culture, how foods are served, how much they cost), eating behaviour (why, how, when and with whom we eat) as well as individual factors (values, genes, knowledge).

Want to discuss your eating habits?

As you start reflecting on your eating habits and attitude to food, you may want to discuss them with a healthcare professional. At the FSHS, nutritional guidance is provided by public health nurses. If necessary, a doctor will assess your situation. If you want to discuss your eating habits, book an appointment with a public health nurse at your service unit.
