The importance of nutrition to the health of circumpolar populations is well documented. Health agencies in circumpolar regions all consider improving the nutritional status of the population a high priority. Given the similarity of geography, climate, and human physiology among circumpolar countries and regions, a comparative review of the different existing nutritional guidelines that are in force and understanding the underlying rationale for differences among them would be instructive for planners of nutritional programs and health care providers.
