VIC

Ageing should mean enjoying food more not less

As you get older, lifestyles and appetites change which affects the types and amounts of food we eat. A decreasing appetite or reduced ability to buy and prepare healthy foods can mean that many older people don’t get enough essential vitamins, minerals and fibre, and this can contribute to general unwellness or exacerbate some chronic illness.

Food and nutrition can have a significant impact to quality of life by meeting the physical, functional and experiential needs of clients.

Online healthy menu assessments coming soon to Victoria

Get a free and instant assessment of the food and drinks you supply with the Healthy Eating Advisory Service’s new online menu assessment tool.

Coming soon, the online menu assessment tool will allow anyone working in long day care or retail food outlets to review food and drink products, recipes and entire menus against the relevant Victorian healthy food and drink guidelines for their setting.

Anyone can use the tool including long day care cooks and managers, retail food outlet staff, or people that support them, such as health professionals.
