Abstract [en]

Meals in everyday life, including selection of food, commensality, and culinary rules are important for people’s identity. The complexity of meals is multifaceted and includes several dimensions. Growing old and being dependent may alter an individual’s food habits, which could affect the social significance of meals in everyday life. To manage food provision in old age and the well-known problems related to this scope of organization policymaking is a common approach. However, applying policies in reality is difficult and can cause dilemmas in everyday life, which is referred to as the policy–practice gap. Adaptive strategies must be used to manage this gap and thereby to reach food security, which is a human right.
