    Food In Later Life

    FILL aims to provide an international, intercultural, multidisciplinary and intergenerational perspective on a specific cultural aspect: how the preparation of food and the rituals associated with eating should change in time to accommodate the changes in nutritional needs and living styles of people. FILL focuses on those who, due to age or diseases, have to substantially change their nutritional style. The target groups include adults caring for their relatives, volunteers active in NGOs, aging people and educators working in the fields of social work and healthcare. In FILL, different cultures, ages, lifestyles and expectations are taken into consideration. A number of simple and effective solutions are available. FILL partners aim to gather data about solutions and to offer concise information to those who are involved, directly or indirectly, in the preparation and presentation of meals. To this end, FILL partners are producing textual, visual and audiovisual informational products. The motivation for FILL derives from the need to bring about knowledge exchanges on cultural and social aspects linked to nutrition in later life. Learning materials are also needed to clearly explain to those involved in preparing food how to adapt the food and which strategies to use to make the mealtime a meaningful instance for those who are involved in it; transforming the mealtime from a routine to something pleasurable. FILL partners are working towards these goals. The project, which was launched in August 2013, will last until July 2015. FILL is a project conducted under the Grundtvig strand of the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme.
