Nutrition Society of Malaysia (NSM) was established in September 1985. A non-profit oriented organisation, it is committed to the promotion, advancement and dissemination of scientific knowledge on nutrition.
In addition, the Society plays a major role in informing and acquainting the public and Government with matters related to food and nutrition. In 1998, NSM was given overall responsibility to produce and distribute 'Resipi Sihat, Pilihan Bijak' Jilid I, initiated by the Ministry of Health in conjunction with its Healthy lifestyle Programme. This recipe book is a major undertaking aimed at educating the general public about the importance of healthy eating habits while demonstrating the ways in which these may be achieved. The project involved the participation of key health and nutrition experts representing the various health and academic bodies.
'Resipi Sihat, Pilihan Bijak' Jilid 1 is the first authoritative guide by the Ministry of Health on proper food selection and preparation for the family. All the recipes within were specially modified and kitchen tested, and each is accompanied with a table of nutritional information, useful in the planning of healthy meals.
