There’s a sad reality in residential aged care facilities: the nutritional value of foods served is often inadequate and fails to meet Australian Dietary Guidelines for older adults. In this podcast, we’re joined by Dr Sandra Iuliano to explore the extent to which food in aged care facilities impacts a resident’s health. Sandra talks through the key findings of The Fractures Trial, a world first research initiative which found intake of three and a half serves of dairy a day over two years prevented malnutrition in older people and reduced hip fractures by 46%. Sandra also emphasises the crucial role dietitians play in collaborating with chefs and educating healthcare professionals to improve resident’s food intake.
