Healthy living

Making a healthy life an easy choice

What does being healthy mean to you? For us, it’s about making smart everyday choices that are good for both your body and the environment. It’s about taking the bike instead of the car in your daily commute and activities. It’s about a day at your desk that’s actually good for your body and energy levels. It’s about the joy of seeing the seeds you planted grow into a mini-garden - because, in the end, even the small changes make a big difference.

Salmon. Good and good for you

Seafood is part of our company’s Swedish heritage, sold and served at IKEA around the world every day. Salmon makes for a delicious and nutritious meal. With just two or three servings a week you’ll meet your body’s need for omega-3 fatty acids while getting a good dose of antioxidants, protein, iodine and vitamins D, A and B12. So we’re giving this typical Scandinavian treat a modern twist, and introducing our pulled salmon sandwich. Combining hot-smoked ASC certified salmon with a spicy BBQ glaze, served in a sourdough bun with green leafy salad. Healthy and delicious.

Besides the omega-3 fatty acids and protein, salmon contains antioxidants, iodine and vitamins D, A and B12 - making it both delicious and nutritious.

Making pearls from seaweed

Our seaweed pearls have a good texture, rich colour, a great taste and consistency similar to traditional caviar. Seaweed pearls are made from kelp and are a pure vegetable product, with very few calories, zero cholesterol and a source of calcium, iron and magnesium.

Veggies with attitude, even the kids love

Our vegetable balls are made from vegetables only, high in nutrition, fibre and protein and their carbon footprint is 30 times less than that of meatballs. Tasty, healthy, better for the planet, and no need to remind the family to “eat their greens” anymore.  
 
“Finally, after testing different combinations, we were home! The ball is delicious and it looks really tasty too, when you cut it open you can see the ingredients. No ball looks like the other – they look homemade and fresh, have a rich taste, and we’re really happy about the outcome.” says Annika Dunnico, Project Developer, Project Leader at IKEA Food.

Pure and natural energy, without the excess sugar. MUNSBIT is a little energy boost when you need it the most. It’s an affordable problem-solver, keeping everyone happy, and a healthier option.
