27 Food Innovations for the Aging

From Healthier Donuts to Chocolates For Boomers

— December 1, 2014 — Life-Stages
Foods for boomers include more nutritious varieties of classic junk food indulgences as well as edibles that are simply packaged and presented in a manner that appeals more to the salt-and-pepper boomer than the freckle-faced Generation Z kid.

With boomers entering retirement age, there is an increased appreciation for the importance of a nutritious diet. However, being a boomer or senior doesn't mean that you have to trade in delicious foods for bland, boring and uninspiring meals. These days, there are a wide variety of edibles including snacks and full-on meals that allow boomers to stay on top of their health goals without compromising on the enjoyment of eating.

There is also a growing market for technologies that make it easier for boomers to prepare, cook and consume food.
