This text examines the sociological and physiological aspects of ageing and the manner in which they affect the nutritional needs of individuals. The coverage of the theories of ageing is updated, and so provides a sound basis for understanding the process of ageing as a natural one. New findings in geriatric nutrition are discussed, ensuring that students have a current basis for their studies. The chapter on food selection patterns discusses how ethnic, social and cultural patterns affect the likely response to dietary intervention, and provides students with a guide as to how to approach future clients in order to ensure the greatest likelihood of a successful interaction. The updated chapter on drugs and nutrition provides a background to drug-nutrient interactions and polypharmacy.
