The AAL Programme invites you for a special opportunity to join a workshop that will show you the latest technology in food care. Join for a session on 27 October 2021 at 10.00 CET!
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the seriousness of existing gaps in the delivery of tasty, healthy and high-quality meals to the elderly. Primary food care plays a major role to improve the quality of life in aged care through the joy of food!
The Working Group on Food & Nutrition, a subgroup of the A3 Action Group in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) has developed a common, integrated vision on the nutritional approach to frailty, taking into account also the impact of social integration and psychosocial behaviour of the elderly.
This decade of food care transformation requires modernisation and digitalisation of culinary systems implemented by trained and skilled chefs in healthcare, on the basis of gastrological innovations, gastrologic sciences and cost-effective criteria that will deliver a more targeted, personalised, effective and efficient foodservice, based on the needs and expectations of the senior EU citizens.
In this workshop you will learn more about the issue of undernutrition in Europe, the future vision of how primary food care could look, as well as experience a live cooking session.
