We present an anthropological study carried out in 2015 in Normandy, that explores how the elderly relate to their diet and what stimulates their appetite. The study was conducted by a multidisciplinary group led by an innovative approach within an agro- food company specialized in nutrition. We discuss the major criteria for appreciation of foods, how the notion of “eating well” equates to balance and well-being and finally the importance of sharing meals with others.

Keywords: Food; The Elderly; Eating Well; Normandy
