Interventions on diet and physical activity: What Works
Maintaining and/or improving diet and physical activity among older adults can significantly improve overall health and quality of life in a globally aging population. Group physical activity programmes reported improvements in psychosocial outcomes.
Evidence indicates that programmes for older adults must reduce barriers by addressing accessibility, for example through home delivery of fruit and vegetables, or by conducting physical activity programmes at venues where older adults regularly meet. However, more long-term research is necessary to see changes in rates of chronic NCD morbidity and mortality.
