The FOODLIT-PRO: Food Literacy Project is a national project funded by FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, which aims to explore the “food literacy” construct in Portugal. With the aim of promoting the quality of food literacy in Portuguese adults, FOODLIT-PRO comprises (i) a qualitative study with national experts (published internationally), (ii) the development of a conceptual and empirical model of food literacy (published internationally ), (ii) the construction and validation of a food literacy measurement scale (in development), and (iv) the development of an intervention to promote knowledge, skills and eating behaviors in adults (in development). Allowing the understanding of this construct in a broader spectrum of food systems, FOODLIT-PRO intends to contribute to the development and implementation of multi-sectoral food measures and policies that contribute to the promotion of food literacy in the Portuguese population.
