Nutrition & Aging

A summary report has been published for the Nutrition & Aging Think Tank event on May 20-21, hosted by the Schelegel-University of Waterloo Research Institute for Aging (RIA) and the Agri-food for Healthy Aging (A-HA) program.

Hosted by the same research group that is looking at the standardization of pureed foods, experts in nutrition and aging converged in Waterloo to engage in a priority-setting process to identify the key determinants of food intake in long-term care settings. The determinants they prioritized included both psychosocial as well as nutritional aspects of mealtimes such as social interactions, self-feeding ability, assisting attitude, nutrition density and others.
