Food for Care – Annelies Hermsen

“I can imagine that we will apply the Food For Care concept in the supermarket, to provide  hyper personalized nutrition as a form of medicine to support everyone’s personal health.  Imagine supermarkets selling customized food packages for pregnant women, people with  depression, eczema, irritable bowel syndrome or people recovering from surgery…”

Onco Proof Food is a project initiated by Radboudumc for which Annelies was asked to develop a  new food concept for oncology patients. Based on in-depth research, she translated the  patients’ (negative) eating experiences into a new food concept that is both visually and nutritionally  attractive. The concept included the development of a daily range of seven small dishes (in contrast to  three large meals), presentation techniques and all-round practical advice to improve the experience  as a whole. As a result, the patients stayed in better shape, they needed less nausea medication, and  the employees experienced more pleasure in their work. After the Onco Proof Food pilot, the concept  was expanded to include all different departments of the hospital and the subsidiary company Food  for Care was established.
