Dr Julie Abayomi (Edge Hill University)
The main event will take place over four days at The Hilton Liverpool and will provide huge value to nutritional professionals from academia, industry and health-care, to food technologists, sports nutritionists, dieticians and physicians.
Good nutrition is critical at all stages of life to ensure adequate intakes of the essential amino acids, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that are needed to sustain life. As human bodies change significantly over time, and food is the fuel for those changes, the amounts of nutrients needed at varying life stages can differ significantly. The conference will give delegates a chance to explore the nutritional requirements across all stages of life as experts come together to discuss topics ranging from early nutrition during pregnancy, to the challenges faced for nutritionally vulnerable, elderly populations. Speakers will also discuss some of the dietary modifications used for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease as well as the potential health impacts of food fortification and reformulation strategies.
Delegates will have the opportunity to network and collaborate over evening receptions and a dinner at the Maritime Museum.
