Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not older adults utilize nutritional information displayed in restaurants to guide their ordering decisions. Previous studies have focused on the responses of other populations to nutritional information provided in restaurant menus, but no quantitative studies have been performed to determine the older adult population's use of restaurant nutritional information. A convenience sample of 61 adults ages 55 and older was surveyed regarding their dining-out behavior and use of nutritional information. The findings were that the provision of nutritional information on restaurant menus affects purchase selections among older adults. Older adults tend to be most interested in specific nutrient content such as the amount of sodium, sugar, saturated fat and trans fat.
