Thank you to the many seniors, dietitians, reviewers and
others who contributed to the development of this handbook.

Senior Focus Group participants
Through a series of 10 focus groups across the province,
more than 150 British Columbians – ranging in age from 50-
something to 87 – helped us determine what seniors really
want to know about nutrition. Some brought in their favourite
recipes (several of which appear in Chapter 11). Many brought
in brochures, books and website addresses where they had
found good nutrition information. We learned a lot and had a
lot of fun at the same time.
We also thank the organizations that helped find us so many
active and lively participants and allowed us to use their
facilities for our meetings.
A few participants wish to remain anonymous.
