Call for proposals – Healthy diet: early years and ageing population

A balanced diet with an adequate level of physical activity helps to maintain or improve the health status of the individual, whether children, adult or old person

Currently, the risk of malnutrition and physical inactivity is not sufficiently recognized and malnutrition occurs frequently in older people in Europe.

The European Commission has launched a call for proposal in the framework of the Preparatory Action ‘Healthy diet: Early years and Ageing Population’ to tackle this challenge.

The eligible projects should focus on three priorities:
– Promoting a balanced diet and adequate nutrition status in all ages.
– Screening for nutritional status in older people.
– Implementation of good practices in nutrition management in clinical and community settings.

The final deadline for the submission of proposals is 14/08/2014
