How can I find out more about what Polish people eat?

Can you think of any good sources of information on Polish daily eating habits, dietary trends, frequently used ingredients and dishes etc.? Bonus question: how much overlap is there with other Eastern European countries?

My current employer - a Dutch hospital - is looking for ways to give better, culturally acceptable dietary advice to our Polish patients.
Basically we need to learn what, how and when the Poles eat (and don't eat) so that we don't just blindly push Dutch recommendations, or fail to recognize potential problems. The daily work is often hampered by a language barrier, hence my quest for background info.
Articles etc. in Polish are also welcome, as online translations seem to turn out legible enough.
Extra point for any specifically diabetes related information (e.g. what would a Polish dietician recommend to patients with diabetes, or advice them to avoid).
