Perceptions, connaissances et comportements en matière d’alimentation : les spécificités des seniors

Abstract : Nowadays it is recognised that a healthy diet and regular physical activity both contribute to successful ageing. Public authorities agree that retirement is the best time to promote such healthy behavioural patterns. In 2008, the French National Institute for health prevention and education (INPES) put the Baromètre santé nutrition (health nutrition barometer) into action for the third time. The aim of the enquiry was to analyse and follow perception, knowledge and behavioural patterns regarding nutrition and physical exercise. The article analyses the specificities of people between the ages of 55 and 75 regarding nutritional dimension. The results show that these people’s nutritional perceptions are more health oriented than those of younger people. Their knowledge of what is recommended as far as fruit, vegetables, dairy products and the group including meat, fish and eggs, is not so good but better regarding fish and physical exercise. Consumption of fruit and vegetables, fish and carbohydrates prove to be better for the health. These rather encouraging results are liable to change after the age of 75. Further research is needed beyond this age.
