Abstract

House-bound older adults are at risk of malnutrition. However there is limited knowledge of dietary intake in this population in the UK. The 'meals on wheels' (MOW) service delivers meals to this population to help meet their nutritional requirements. This study aimed to compare the nutritional intake of older adults receiving MOW with dietary reference values (DRVs) and to consider the contribution that MOW provides to the daily intake
