Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the population ages, the importance of geriatric nutrition becomes increasingly critical. Understanding what constitutes optimal nutrition for older people is more than a dietary challenge; it is fundamental to ensure a dignified and healthy later life. This Special Issue is dedicated to exploring the pivotal role of nutrition in the health and well-being of older people. We aim to provide a comprehensive platform for the latest research, insights and discussions that address unique dietary and nutritional needs and challenges in older adults.

This Special Issue seeks to illuminate the complex relationship between diet, nutrients, bioactive food components, complex dietary pattern and food policy, and age-related physiological changes, disease prevention and management, and improvements in the quality of life. We encourage submissions that cover a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to, (1) nutritional requirements for aging adults; (2) the impact of nutritional and dietary factors on chronic disease prevention and management in older people; and (3) innovative dietary strategies to mitigate the risk of geriatric syndromes.

We invite original research papers and ordinary or systematic reviews that contribute to our understanding of geriatric nutrition.
