About

Targeted Nutrition is part of the Inspire Programme funded by EIT Food. This summer school will take a targeted approach to developing healthy innovative food products for consumers with specific nutritional and consumer needs; these could include infants, children, adolescents, or older adults.

Overview

You will learn how to develop healthy innovative food products for consumers with specific nutritional needs. Get to know the problem: Understand the target groups with specific nutritional needs or where nutrients are currently lacking in a particular population group. Understand how to develop food products; from the consumer understanding and ingredients, through to food processing, food safety and packaging, as well understanding the UK and EU's policy landscape. Collaborate with other learners to design and assess existing product formulation processes and learn how to communicate with various stakeholders to become the future of food entrepreneurship!

Programme Structure

  • Learners will develop their knowledge about the nutritional needs of these populations and how they differ to the general population. These will include infants, children, adolescents, or older adults. These group will be targeted as they are most at risk of nutritional deficiency or overnutrition, which can have implications for the development of non-communicable diseases and life-long ill health.
  • Learner will apply their nutrition knowledge to devise a new product for a specific target group.
  • Learners will be challenged to synthesis a defined product specification, evaluate, and construct the progression of a new food product from the development stage to commercial production.
  • Leaners will analyse the product lifecycle and evaluate the environmental impact.
  • Learners will be supported by food industry representatives allowing students to develop creative thinking, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
