A fresh concept for affordable, nutritious and tasty food
The decisions we make in life are often based upon compromise and a careful weighing up of our options. We know, for example, that we should eat a balanced diet, but tend to worry that nutritious food will cost significantly more. Existing data confirm that people at risk of poverty do tend to have poorer diets. Taking the view that nutritious food does not need to be expensive – and that no one in Europe should be unable to afford to eat healthily – the EU-funded CHANCE project examined how to address this issue.
The CHANCE project has created every day products that are both affordable and nutritious, thus promising a future in which everyone, including those at risk of poverty, can enjoy a healthy diet without worrying about cost. The project's techniques are being applied by small food processors – a boost to their competitiveness.
