A healthy diet can help keep the body and mind healthy and extend the quality of life. A healthy diet and lifestyle are even more important for elderly people with care needs. Seniors often experience a decreased appetite, resulting in malnutrition. INtoEAT aims at development and implementation of innovative digital tools that can improve healthy eating habits and lifestyle in elderly as a nutrition aid. Specifically, a smart tray, a digital food coach, and a lifestyle app will be used for enabling personalised (remote) diet and lifestyle supervision and coaching, facilitating elderly to live longer independently and at home. Nutritionists also benefit a lot from the information in the app and can make better adjustments to patients’ diets. This, combined with intensive guidance from a nutrition coach, supports lifestyle and eating behaviour improvement.
