Abstract

Although poor diet is a major driver of morbidity and mortality in people 60 and older, few dietary interventions are widely implemented for this population. We mapped behavior change theories, agents, and techniques in dietary interventions for adults 60+ and explored relationships between these factors and ability to retain at least 80% of the study participants.
