Aims to improve our understanding of the decisions and circumstances which influence the quality and quantity of foods consumed by older people by assessing the influence of taste preference factors, micro‐economic factors, personal and health status factors, practical considerations and accessibility of food retail outlets on the selection of foods by older people.
