What We Do in the Project

KU Leuven is involved in WP1, 2, 5 and 7. We assist in the dietary intake measurements, we hope to be able to tackle the health/beauty paradox and we will evaluate the effect of indigenous foods on several health outcomes. Finally, we would like to use an alternative method to measure food intake by using a smartplate.
