The Functional Foods for Healthy Aging Toolkit is a collection of resources to assist Registered Dietitians and other health professionals in communicating with older adults about functional foods.
The toolkit includes:
- Background information about functional foods.
- Background information about older adults and how functional foods would benefit their health.
- Results from a University of Guelph research study designed to explore functional food
consumption in a sample of older adults.
- Educational resources to facilitate interaction with older adults about functional foods.
In addition, the toolkit includes a link to an anonymous evaluation survey so the research team can gather feedback about how the resource is being used and applied in practice.
