Soldiers in the same battalion do not all perform the same kind of work. Some are very mobile and engage in strenuous physical effort, while others do jobs in offices. As a result, people’s calorie requirements may vary widely within the same organization. Aware of the problem of excess weight, our dietitians take the daily activity of each category of personnel into account to propose meals that meet their actual nutritional needs.
