The MooDFOOD project has worked to achieve the following objectives:

  • To gain a better understanding of psychological, lifestyle and environmental pathways underlying the multi-faceted, bidirectional links of food intake, nutrient status, food-related behaviour and obesity with depression.
  • To develop and disseminate innovative evidence-based, feasible, effective and sustainable nutritional strategies for the prevention of clinical depression.
  • To transform these nutritional strategies into guidelines and create practical tools to guide policy at EU- and Member State levels.
