Elderly people have often been neglected in lifestyle surveys, so little is known about the foods they eat and the attitudes which inform their food choices. Describes a collaborative study currently in progress in the City of Nottingham which investigates food choice among elderly people living at home. Aims to improve our understanding of the decisions and circumstances which influence the quality and quantity of foods consumed by older people by assessing the influence of taste preference factors, micro‐economic factors, personal and health status factors, practical considerations and accessibility of food retail outlets on the selection of foods by older people.
