The elderly people of Australia are a growing sector of the population. It is the elderly, especially the institutionalised elderly who are at high risk of undernutrition and other nutrition related problems. At present nutrition information on the institutionalised in Australia is very limited. This study assesses both the nutritional adequacy of the menu and dietary intake of the elderly residents (n=48) of a 64 bed private nursing home in the Blue Moimtains area.
