Thanks to Arja Lyytikäinen, SAPERE board member, for sharing this very interesting news:

“Very nice article just published to be added around the scientific evidence for Sapere – sensory food education during the life span (not only for children); narrow selection of foodstuffs, unbalanced diet due to neophobia is associated with poorer nutrition and risk of NCDs. Sapere – food education, as we all know, could be the solution to help people to eat more varied and have a better diet.”

In American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, June/2019: Food neophobia associates with poorer dietary quality, metabolic risk factors, and increased disease outcome risk in population-based cohorts in a metabolomics study

Media release from the National Institute for Health and Welfare (although only available in Finnish):
