Main role in the project
Delafruit is mainly involved in the development of innovative, healthy, and sustainable plant-based new food products adapted to children nutritional profile and to be consumed in-between times following an eco-design methodology developed in the project (WP2). Delafruit will participate in the identification of Mediterranean plant-based food ingredients which are rich in bioactive components, that could make important contributions to health, and which play important role in recipes and in Mediterranean culture (Task 1.1 and 1.3). Moreover, Delafruit participates in the design and implementation of a multicentric and multi-social family-based nutritional intervention across families in Spain with the new products developed (Task 4.1 and 4.2) Besides, Delafruit will contribute, along with the rest of the partners, in Dissemination and Management tasks envisaged in WP6 and WP7, respectively.
