Why do children eat what they eat? Very simply, children choose to eat what they like and refuse foods they do not like. In other words, food liking is one of the most important drivers for children’s food choice and intake. The foods that children like are foods they are familiar with. Foods are accepted when they look, feel, smell, and taste familiar. Increasing the acceptance of certain foods then simply requires repeated exposure to that food. Importantly, this exposure includes tasting.

About FlaVR, a pitch from the University of Warwick

flavr

FlaVR is a technology developed at the University of Warwick that allows recreating highly accurate real flavour experiences by delivering the precise combination of individual virtual flavour components (taste, aroma, mouthfeel) to a person’s mouth and nose. In fact, we have developed the ability to simulate, modify and replicate any smell, taste or flavour experience in a safe, controlled, and repeatable manner.

Bringing down barriers to children´s Healthy eating, from sensory perception to social interactions: Edulia MSCA project

Paula Varela

by Paula Varela, Professor, NMBU – Norwegian University of Life Sciences / Senior Researcher, Nofima

Edulia MSCA network responds to the urgent need of the EU society to find new ways to tackle the escalating issue of obesity, through promoting healthier eating from childhood, within the context of choice.

Edulia goes further than the classical approach of “teaching children what is healthy”, by exploring social marketing and nudging strategies, study peer and family social interactions and social media marketing, identify sensory and non-sensory parameters that influence what is eaten (food choice) and how much is eaten (intake), and develop products which can drive healthy eating through sensory pleasure.

What do you know about food and health interaction in children?

Edgar van Mil

by Edgar van Mil, Prof. MD, PhD, pediatric endocrinologist and special chair holder (together with Remco Havermans) Youth, Food and Health, Maastricht University – Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo

program: https://healthynutritionconference.com/program/

We all need food to survive. Nutritious food is needed for a good health. This is what we all know, but when it comes down to making choices in what we define as healthy food, do we really know the value of food to our health? Or do we at least know via what mechanisms these considered good foods lead to health?
