This Erasmus+ Youth Exchange project aims to bring a new perspective on nutrition and health, emphasizing the place and importance of food in our culture. The project addresses the basics of good nutrition, healthy food processing and preparation methods, and encourages cultural exchange by enabling participants from different countries to introduce each other to their traditional dishes. An important part of this process is the preservation of forgotten traditional dishes and the transfer of this valuable heritage to future generations.

Another important aspect of the project is to examine the relationships between nutrition, sports and healthy living and to raise awareness on these issues. In this context, the overall aim of the project is to promote social inclusion and interaction through traditional cuisine and cultural exchange. In particular, the inclusion of individuals with limited economic, geographical, cultural and social opportunities is intended to enable them to benefit from this rich cultural interaction and share their own experiences.
