Abstract
Malnutrition is a serious problem among people of old age.
To overcome malnutrition, a change of food consumption be-
haviour is necessary, which needs to be based on specialist
advice from health-care professionals. Changing food-related
behaviour, however, is known to be difficult. Our approach to
this problem is to provide an intelligent meal planning sys-
tem to be used by the elderly person in his or her home. The
system provides recommendations of suitable food recipes,
taking into account the advice of the care givers (e.g. in terms
of dietary restrictions, suitable energy and fat levels, etc). We
describe the requirements, design, algorithms, and user inter-
face of the system, and discuss ongoing and future work.
