NCBI Bookshelf. Then, Nancy Wellman of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Tufts University, Boston, Massachusetts, discussed food shopping, preparation, and consumption habits of older adults, as well as food insecurity trends among older adults. She emphasized that most Americans age 65 years and older live not in nursing homes or other institutional settings but in the community and that most food and nutrition programs aimed at providing services for these community-dwelling older adults are under-funded or disregarded.

The presentations provided a wealth of background information on aging populations and served as a point of reference for the remainder of the workshop presentations and discussions. Today, there are about While these s appear high, if they are considered in a historical context, starting in up until using projected s for the population size from the present year untilit is very clear that the current growth rate of both the and-older and and-older is in fact lower than it has ever been in the past century Figure But this is about to change.

In the next one or two years and continuing over the course of the next 20 years, the growth rate of the older population is going to dramatically increase to nearly double what it is today Figure This steep incline reflects aging of the baby boomer generation, with about 75 million people moving into the ranks of the older population during the next 20 years.

The U. NOTE: These data refer to the resident population; data for years — are projections of the population. Census Bureau, Decennial Census, Population more The changing growth rate of the U. Census Bureau, Kinsella noted that the projected future growth of the and-older population in particular has taken demographers and social scientists by surprise. Bythere will be an estimated 19 million people in the United States age 85 and older. In the past, statisticians have tended to underestimate improvements in mortality. If one were to examine these same projected s 20 years ago, the s would be a lot lower than they are today.

Moreover, given that these projected s are official U. Census Bureau s, Kinsella suspects that they may be conservative and that the real s could be even higher. Referring to discussion in the session about the legibility of food labels, Kinsella observed that this is an important trend to keep in mind, given the high prevalence of vision problems in the oldest old.

Kinsella discussed some key trends in the aging population in more detail. For example, geographically, the and-older population is concentrated in the upper Midwest and parts of Florida. The and-older population is concentrated in the upper Midwest, Florida, and New England.

When categorized by race, from and projected tothe non-Hispanic white population will become a much smaller percent of the total in the future 61 percent in than it is today 81 percent in Conversely, the Hispanic population will occupy a much larger proportion of the and-older age group in the future 18 percent in than it does today 6 percent in Kinsella explained how immigration is likely to impact the age structure of the U. Compared to other developed countries, the United States is a fairly young country in the sense that the proportion of the U. The United States does not even rank among the top 20 countries with respect to the percentage of the population age 65 years or older because, although fertility rates in the United States tend to be slightly higher than in other developed countries, so do immigration rates.

Every year, there is an influx of mostly young and middle-aged adults, with the bulk of the foreign-born U. Age structure for the U. Just as life expectancy at birth has been increasing over the past century, so too has life expectancy at the ages of 65 and 85 Figure Kinsella explained that another way to examine this trend is to consider survivorship. Survival at every age has increased over the past century as well Figure Inthere was a large drop-off early in life because of infant mortality.

Many people up to about 20 percent died during the first one or two years of life. Bythis early drop-off all but disappeared. Meanwhile, survival at later ages has increased. For example, only 50 percent of white females survived to the age of 60 years inand only about 5 percent of white females who reached the age of 50 survived to the age of Inabout 90 percent of white females survived to the 55 looking for same or older of 60, and more 55 looking for same or older 25 percent of white females who survived to the age of 50 survived to the age of Life expectancy at ages 65 and 85 years, by sex, from the years — NOTE: These data refer to the resident population.

Survivorship curve among U. Kinsella explained how the shift of the entire survivorship curve in Figure has led to an interesting debate in gerontology with regard to what the future shape of the curve will look like.

There is no that the trend is going to stop, but how far will it go? Will people be living to the age of or ?

What are the limits to life expectancy? Kinsella raised the question: While it is clear the people are living longer, are they living any better? Are these added years healthy years, or does it mean that society will be experiencing more disease and disability?

Until very recently, very few countries had data that could be used to definitively answer these questions. Data from the U. The good news, Kinsella said, is that non-disabled component of the Medicare-enrolled and-over population has been rising over time. This trend is reflected in the fact that the percentage of Medicare-enrolled and-older individuals who reside in institutional settings i.

While largely non-disabled, substantial proportions of the older population nonetheless reported chronic conditions in the National Health Interview Survey. About half of all men 52 percent and women 54 percent over the age of 65 report hypertension this does not include individuals with undiagnosed hypertension ; and about half 43 percent of men, 54 percent of women report arthritis Figure Overweight defined as a body mass index [ BMI ] of 25 or greater and obesity BMI of 30 55 looking for same or older greater are also prevalent among the older population, with nearly 80 percent of men and 70 percent of women between the ages of 65 and 74 considered overweight according to the — National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey NHANES.

Importantly, the percentage of older adults who are overweight or obese has been increasing. Percent of people age 65 and over who reported having selected chronic conditions, by sex, — NOTE: Data are based on a 2-year average from — and refer to the civilian, non-institutionalized population. Many older adults also report problems with hearing, seeing, and oral health Figure Kinsella noted the high percentage of people over the age of 65 who have no natural teeth about a quarter of the populationwhich he said is important to keep in mind when considering food consumption in the older population.

Finally, a substantial proportion of the older population experiences at least some level of memory impairment, which may be important to keep in mind when considering how older adults decipher food messages and plan nutritional intake. Percentage of people age 65 and older who reported having any trouble hearing, any trouble seeing, or no natural teeth, by sex, Kinsella pointed out several socioeconomic indicators that may have some relevance to the workshop discussion:.

In conclusion, Kinsella remarked on the value of looking at what other countries are doing to accommodate older populations. The United States is not even on the list. Kinsella suggested that there are probably other interesting and relevant initiatives under way in the countries in Figure that we may benefit from knowing about.

Census Bureau, International Database, Wellman began her presentation by commenting on the fact that most Americans over the age of 65 live in the community, not in nursing homes or other institutions. Only 4. The majority of older adults In fact, she remarked that it is U. First, Wellman shared data on various food shopping behaviors among all consumers 55 looking for same or older differentiated by age and among consumers age 55 years and older:.

Food and beverage package information used by shoppers when deciding to purchase or eat a food or beverage. Wellman remarked that most of the data she would be sharing on food preparation and consumption behavior were proprietary data made available by the NPD Group, a Chicago-based market research company, and she thanked Suzie Crocket from General Mills for allowing her to access the data.

Using a variety of sources, the NPD Group collects data on pantry preparation, individual consumption behavior, motivations and attitudes that drive people to eat the way they do, etc. Both boomers without children and matures spend less time overall preparing and cooking foods than families with children, with much less time spent preparing and cooking in the morning compared to later in the day. For example, both groups spend about 2 minutes preparing and another 2 minutes cooking their morning meals and about 12 minutes preparing and 25 minutes cooking their evening meals.

For both groups, the of dishes per meals is fairly small and increases as the day goes on. For example, not including beverages, both groups prepare and cook about 1. Matures tend to eat more of their meals at home than boomers without children do, with breakfast being the meal most often eaten at home. For matures, breakfast is also generally considered the most satisfying in terms of nutritional quality.

As people age, dinners tend to be aimed at meeting convenience needs, with less planning, less use of ovens, grills, or stovetops, greater use of appliances such as microwaves and toasters, matures have the highest lunchtime appliance use, probably because more are retired and eat lunch at home and less clean up.

Because the goal is convenience, dinners tend to be not as satisfying from a nutritional quality standpoint.

Wellman briefly discussed IFIC survey data showing that while respondents ages 55 and older were a little more likely to regularly perform actions to ensure food safety when cooking, preparing, and consuming food products, there is room for improvement among respondents of all age groups in regularly performing these actions. In terms of microwavable meals, older adults are slightly more likely than other age groups to follow all cooking instructions, check the label for conditions of use, and let the food stand for an appropriate time after microwaving.

Nonetheless, only 40—80 percent of respondents in all age groups reported regularly following any of those actions. As shown in Figureall respondents, particularly those in 55 looking for same or older 18—44 year-old age group, reported a of obstacles to safe food handling, all associated with a lack of something—information, time, proper equipment, or interest. Obstacles survey respondents reportedly face when handling food safely. Check all that apply. For both boomers without children and matures, most consumption choices are driven not by health but by convenience, taste, and indulgence.

That said, according to NPD Group data, health is the most important driver in the morning, and it drives more food choices in general among matures 34 percent than among boomers without children 27 percent. This may be because different moods affect food choices, and matures tend to be more relaxed, calm, and content than boomers without children.

In terms of what people actually eat for breakfast at home, for both matures and boomers without children, juices and healthy ready-to-eat cereals rank fairly high only coffee ranks higher than either. Other top choices include fruit, bread toast, bagels, etc. Matures consume more fruit juice and hot cereal than boomers do. For lunch at home, top foods and beverages include sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, carbonated soft drinks, milk, soup, tea, sal, salty snacks, coffee, and crackers.

Matures tend to eat more vegetables, milk, soup, and coffee than boomers do. For dinner at home, top food and beverage choices include vegetables, sal, potatoes, fruit, carbonated soft drinks, tea, sandwiches, poultry, milk, bread, beef, soup, coffee, and alcoholic beverages. Matures tend to eat more fruit at dinner than boomers do. Wellman noted that these choices do not look so bad, given that health drives only 1 in 10 dinner choices.

Most dinner choices are driven by convenience 38 percent for boomers without children, 41 percent for matures and personal preference and taste 34 percent for boomers, 31 percent for matures. Everyone snacks, with indulgence driving about half of all snack choices. So even though many people do fairly well in terms of eating nutritiously at breakfast and lunch, they tend to snack on what they really like without much consideration for health.

Only 8 percent of boomers and 9 percent of matures cited health as a driver of snack choices. Top snack foods include candy, fruits, nuts and seeds, ice cream, cookies, potato chips, crackers, pretzels, microwave popcorn, yogurt, tortilla chips, and ice cream bars. Matures tend to favor cookies, crackers, pretzels, and yogurt more than boomers do. Overall and based on the Healthy Eating Index, matures tend to eat more healthfully than boomers without children do, although overall they could be eating even more healthfully.

55 looking for same or older of matures and boomers without children falling into three Healthy Eating Index. Matures are more concerned with negative food attributes, such as salt, fat, and cholesterol, than boomers without children. For example, according to NPD Group data, 70 percent of matures are concerned with total fat content, compared to 64 percent of boomers; 63 percent of matures are concerned with salt, compared to 61 percent of boomers; and 64 percent of matures are concerned with cholesterol, compared to 60 percent of boomers.

Dieting, however, tends to decrease with age, with 25 percent of boomers and 21 percent of matures reporting that they were on a diet in one NPD Group survey. The largest decline has been in the second lowest income quintile, where average CPI-inflation-adjusted spending for food decreased 16 percent.

Median food spending among older adults living alone dropped 5. This decrease, coupled with the fact that one in six older adults already eats fewer than 1, calories a day, raises serious questions about food insecurity. Among older adults living alone, very low food security i. Two research reports by Ziliak and colleagues8 show that Of these, about 2. These reports find that the risk of hunger is greatest among those with limited incomes almost half of all older adults at risk of hunger are low income or below povertythose under the age of 70, African-Americans and Hispanics, never-married individuals, renters, and people who live in the South.

Together, the data indicate that food insecurity is a major problem, with Ziliak and colleagues predicting that bymillions of older Americans will be facing hunger. Byan estimated 9. Given this trend in food insecurity, Wellman argued that efforts to reduce hunger will need to be continued and strengthened.

One way to do this is through federal nutrition assistance programs, many of which are USDA programs.
