Healthy eating for healthy aging: results published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
Based on the self-tests filled in at www.goedgevoedouderworden.nl—translated as “Healthy eating for healthy aging”—over half of the older participants were at risk of undernutrition, and four out of five reported early determinants of nutritional risk. Risks increased with increasing age. Internet screening may be a useful, contemporary, and easy, accessible way to reach older adults who are at nutritional risk and may thus contribute to early identification and prevention of undernutrition. This is the conclusion of an article, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, of which some of the authors are involved with the Dutch Malnutrition Steering Group.
