Food and Nutrition Guidelines for Healthy Older People: A background paper aims to improve nutrition, increase physical activity, reduce obesity, and supports The Health of Older People Strategy (Ministry of Health 2002).

The background paper highlights how the Food and Nutrition Guidelines can be specifically applied to healthy older people. It also informs the health education resources for the general public including Eating for Healthy Older People/Te kai tōtika e ora ai te hunga kaumātua.

It is envisaged that the Food and Nutrition Guidelines for Healthy Older People: A background paper will provide sound and practical advice for health practitioners including dietitians, nutritionists, doctors, nurses, primary health care providers, health promoters, and others working with older people in the practice of healthy nutrition.
