This clinical trial compares the results of infants eating the currently recommended Swedish complementary diet to one based on traditional Nordic foods (characterised by a high intake of protein, a low intake of fruits, vegetables and fish and an unfavorable distribution between polyunsaturated and saturated fats). As expected, the results point to the long-term positive outcomes likely to result from the healthier Swedish diet. "...i.e. improved body composition and a less obesogenic, diabetogenic and inflammatory metabolism and gut microbiota composition, a more sustainable nutrient intake for future health and an increased acceptance of healthy foods."
