The Danish Health Authority provides dietary guidance for infants and toddlers and disseminates dietary knowledge to the sick and elderly with special needs.

Updated 27 JAN 2021

Our guidance in the field of nutrition is aimed at specific groups with special nutritional needs. We provide recommendations and guidelines for health professionals and for institutions that prepare food and meals for larger groups – for example in daycare, hospitals and nursing homes.

We collaborate closely with the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, which is behind the official dietary recommendations and the ‘smiley’ inspection of cafes, restaurants and supermarkets.
