    This project investigates the everyday eating practices of four Nordic populations. How do people in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden organise their daily eating? The aim is to understand modern living in more depth and to find out whether eating today is highly individualised largely neglecting old habits and norms regarding proper eating – or, whether these traditions still prevail. The project investigates the acquisition, preparation, timing, presentation, location, companionship, and selection of food using survey methodology including representative samples of four Nordic populations. In addition, the study links up to an earlier Nordic study from 1997, and thus offers a unique opportunity to study social change within a central area of contemporary consumption.
