Create the Foodture
Technology is changing the world. And as such, it is changing the field of Nutrition and Dietetics. Some within this field fear that lifestyle or health apps will replace dietitians. Others think that technology might take away the human aspect of nutritional care or the social aspects of food. Will robots take the place of health care professionals? Will people start eating mechanically processed food containing all necessary nutrients within ever having a collective diner again?
In preparing students for a future (foodture) as a nutritionist or dietitian, we create professionals who do not fear technology, but know how to integrate it in their daily job. They learn how to improve their nutritional assessments of clients by using accurate tools, how to develop tasteful food products for example by 3D-foodprinting them for patients with severe dysphagia, or how to encourage behavior change by using applications on their phone. This leads to future proof professionals who know their strengths and use technology to develop a sustainable and adequate support for all those in need of their expertise!
We create the future!
