The increase in individuals over 60 years of age in America must cause professionals from the fields of nutrition, food science, food systems management and the food industry to consider the determinants of food choices and the effects on the overall health and well-being of elderly citizens and those soon to be in their mature years. Income, household composition, food preferences, time, technology, education, good health, attitudes, physiological changes in vision, hearing, taste and smell, psychological and sociological factors all affect the food choices of the elderly.
