We’ve published a new digital nutrition service called FSHS Nutrition. It offers coaching, podcasts, articles and a diverse range of other material you can use whenever or wherever you choose.
The service has been designed with students and their needs in mind. You can download FSHS Nutrition on your mobile device via the Self online service and use it for the entire duration of your studies.
The goal is to help you discover the healthy eating habits that are right for you. Healthy eating will boost your energy levels and help you cope with your studies and day-to-day life.
With FSHS Nutrition, you’ll be able to access individual coaching programmes as and when you like. These include Everyday Coping and Weight Control. Just choose a programme that interests you, whenever you like.

FSHS Nutrition is based on the MealLogger Plus service developed by an FSHS partner. MealLogger Plus is the first nutritional app used by the FSHS. It was produced by Wellness Foundry together with Wellmo and Provention. A study on its effectiveness will also be carried out in collaboration with the University of Helsinki.
