VALERO GASPAR, Teresa; AVILA TORRES, José Manuel  y  VARELA MOREIRAS, Gregorio. Healthy gastronomy education: challenges and opportunities in the institutional food service. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.spe4, pp.56-60.  Epub 28-Sep-2020. ISSN 1699-5198.


the population demands a healthy gastronomy (binomial Gastronomy and Nutrition), so it must include knowledge of food and health. Health, Education and Gastronomy complement each other. The institutional food service must be healthy and at the same time pleasant.


collect activities, resources and interventions that have been carried out in various institutional food services (school lunches, nursing homes and hospitals) where knowledge about gastronomy and healthy eating has been included as a teaching method at different levels.


a review of the actions and/or materials developed to educate on healthy gastronomy from different areas of collective catering has been carried out, as well as the search for scientific articles in the PubMed, Dialnet and Google academic databases.


the Taste Workshops are complementary and useful educational material for the teachers of Infant and Primary School Education. The menus of nursing home must have a good nutritional contribution and organoleptic quality that stimulates the well-being and socialization of the users, considering that in old age sensory losses affects the pleasure of eating. The alimentary model in the hospital is adapted mainly to the health needs of the users and must reach a gastronomic suitability that will produce well-being during the stay.


institutional food service poses challenges in food preparation and conservation, quality and food safety, nutritional value of food and its implications for the health of populations, and from the point of view of gastronomy, since it involves a daily routine in groups of vulnerable population such as schoolchildren, hospitalized people or the elderly.
