About the Course

The New Nordic Diet is a new food culture developed in 2009-13 with key emphasis on gastronomy, health, and environment. Major research in its effect on acceptability, behaviour and learning skills, and disease prevention have been conducted by the OPUS centre at the University of Copenhagen and the people behind the award-winning restaurant Noma in Copenhagen. This course will give the participants the opportunity to experience a healthy and palatable new food and eating concept diet “The New Nordic Diet” and an understanding of how food and diets can affect mental and physical health and ensure the foundation for a healthier life style for future generations with a regional based diet and food culture. In Denmark “the Nordic cuisine”, has expanded from food eaten at the award-winning Copenhagen restaurant Noma to home-made dishes of local ingredients of whole-grain rye bread, root vegetables, berries, fresh fish and seaweed. This course is also part of the EIT Health Programme...

It has focused both on the importance of the diet and implementation of the diet among the people, but focused mainly on the the requirements and sacrifices to be done for the implementation.

Very good, interesting and well designed lessons. I've got plenty of idea to promoting our national diet of Mongolia. Thank you so much for all those academic researchers and professors.

The course is more about the history of how the OPUS project came together, how "great" it is, how "great" are the danish who will save the world, but it doesn't really give practical concrete information about how to apply health and cooking principles.

The videos are extremely boring: a person talking with almost no visuals and actually without giving any practical information but rather telling the story of how great they are. It's a course painful to watch and it's not worth the time investment.

Para mí, que no soy investigadora, ni médico, este curso explica con demasiado detalle las técnicas utilizadas para llevar a cabo las investigaciones. Lo que me interesa es la nutrición en sí y he echado en falta más explicaciones relativas a nutrientes, más ejemplos de composición de menús, etc. El vídeo que más me ha interesado ha sido el que trata sobre las grasas trans, ese vídeo me ha resultado muy didáctico y esclarecedor. Gracias.

Me ayudo mucho a entender los beneficios de llevar y promover una dieta saludable que sea respetuosa del medio ambiente y a la vez pude ver que tan complejo puede ser evaluar los beneficios de una dieta.

Voy a recomendar mucho este curso!

I enjoyed the detailed explanations about what the OPUS project is and how the study was/is being carried out. The lectures were very interesting and it was great to meet so many different people involved in the study. The core principles of the study were inspiring and multidimensional - for example, considering the identity, sustainability, health and taste factors when considering a new approach to a healthy diet is far more holistic and therefore meaningful than a purely nutritional approach. It was a pleasure to learn about the New Nordic Diet and I have absorbed a lot of new information. Thank you!

This course was a great learning experience. I had initially thought it to be something where I could learn the Nordic cuisine. However, this came out to be entirely different and addressed some very basic problem that even our younger generations are facing. Tasting and experimenting with your own native food. Relying less on animal products and more on seasonally grown vegetables and fruits. Understanding the very notion that the choice of what we put on our plate makes all the difference in the world. I think more such courses should be taught in a similar manner.

O curso é excelente! Muito focado, claro, as explicações são muito bem feitas e os vídeos trazem uma gama grande de informações além das explicações dos professores e pesquisadores. Há gráficos, fotos, palavras-chaves, excelente. Isso nos ajuda a compreender o que está sendo demonstrado. O tema é muito relevante e eu quero muito experimentar a NND. Parabéns a todos envolvidos na elaboração desse curso tão significativo.

I want to thank the authors for creating the course. Once again I was convinced that everything that people need, it is near... The main thing is to have a balance, use what nature gives us and love yourself, take care of yourself and others... to live in harmony with the surrounding world. Food is the tip of the iceberg, WE are what we eat...

I really love this course, specially it give details on how the research carried out and the results and beneficent from this study in compare with other study. However, the accents of some speakers are really difficult to understand so i suggest to write the main things in slides and explain it. Thank you very much.

Very interesting course, which leads to the reflection that we need to change our eating habits, and it is possible. I found a problem in understanding, because I did not know the English language perfectly, I was penalized especially for the completion of the tests. But it was a double and positive challenge for me.

In py opinion, this is the perfect course because with some slight modifications it can be applied literally anywhere, to any community or country no matter how small or large they are. The Danes have yet again, figured it out, and I mean that in the most endearing sense.

Thank you so much for this course.

I absolutely loved taking this course and found it fascinating. I would have been very glad to be able to see the cookbooks that both study groups were given. I ended up searching for them online, but unfortunately was unable to find them either in PDF form or for purchase.

This is a wonderful course, which I have ever learnt so far about Nutrition and Diet. The Team did a lot of Research to show the evidence of benefits of the New Nordic Diet. The Course provides you valuable information to understand and apply on your healthy Diet.

I took this MOOC clearly out of curiosity and it has not let me down. The videos were very well made and the Professors were talking nice and clear. I did not know anything about the New Nordic Diet until I finished the course. And I most enjoyed it. Thank you.

Interesting course which provide a new perspective of Nordic diet. It would be more attractive and vivid if the participates in the case study will be involved in this course. Moreover I wish the Nordic Cuisine recipe will be introduced into the course.

Fantastic Course; A bit heavy on the statistics, but very interesting to learn about a transition in food culture. Would be interesting to see a course abou other places can apply the findings to change their own good culture.

An insightful course to healthy eating and hopefully a new trend in worldwide food culture. Sustainable local food that takes into account nutritional requirements and has a great palatability + this is the future of food.
