Personalized nutrition aims to promote well-being and health through individualized healthy nutrition choices based on individual’s’ dietary habits, genetics, microbiota and disease. Personalized nutrition is also key to the goal of creating a healthy, sustainable and affordable food ecosystem.

In this talk, I will talk about the challenges to realizing personalized nutrition framework and solutions and what AI and Data Science can offer to address these challenges.

Krizia Ferrini, cereneo Schweiz AG | center for neurology & rehabilitation, will speak at Healthy Nutrition Conference, on June 26, during AgriFood Innovation Event in Venlo, The Netherlands.

The general purpose of the LIFANA Nutrition Solution is to help elderly people maintaining their BMI as their metabolism is changing with age and their eating habits eventually need to be reconsidered. LIFANA provides a personalized meal plan that helps users to prevent undernutrition or overweight and to reach their weight goals. Users with limited mobility require assistance with their shopping tasks, therefore LIFANA integrates informal caregivers in the process and provides a connection to a grocery delivery service.

The LIFANA approach is based on meal recommendations instead of food logging to make its usage more convenient by reducing the required interaction with the system, since only deviations from the plan need to be reported. The solution also keeps nutritionists in the loop to benefit from their experience and support their work for clients through ICT.

Personalized Nutrition & Health: from science to practice – Presented by Iris de Hoogh, TNO, at the Healthy Nutrition Conference, 27 June 2018, Brightlands Campus, Venlo, The Netherlands.

Personalized nutrition is rapidly emerging due to a number of technological, scientific, and societal developments. Personalized nutrition tailors dietary recommendations to the individual; not only by taking into account specific biological biomarkers or genetics, but also personal characteristics, preferences and the environment. Therefore, a systems approach that considers the most relevant interacting mechanisms is necessary to formulate the most optimal and relevant advice.
