'ICAA B2B Snapshot Report: Nutrition needs in senior living
There was a time when food simply filled our need for energy, sustenance and social experiences.

This knowledge, driven by science, has seen the messages about food choices for healthy eating widely promoted in the United States.

Responses to the ICAA B2B Snapshot Survey illuminate nutrition needs in senior living and how organizations are addressing them. This article presents some research highlights.
