About Nutrition in Disguise
The Nutrition in Disguise (NiD) project focuses on creating nutrient-dense recipes by adding healthy ingredients to common foods that residents living in Long-Term Care (LTC) already enjoy. NID is an initiative of the Ontario CLRI at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA).
NiD is a training program and recipe box that can be used by LTC menu planners and chefs. Findings from the NiD research shows that recipes can be made more nutritious through menu planning with key ingredients.
Nutrition is vital for residents in long-term care. But making nutritious and enjoyable foods can be challenging. It is important that these meals contain sufficient protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre to support overall health and sustain independence in older adults.
If you have any questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to answer them.
The Nutrition in Disguise resources are made available through the Ontario CLRI at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA). These resources are based on research completed by the RIA, the University of Waterloo and the University of Guelph, in partnership with Schlegel Villages. This research was made possible with the generosity of George Weston Limited and Loblaw Companies Limited.
