Many of the foods that we eat everyday are grown right here in Ontario. These nutrient-rich foods not only provide us with essential nutrition but also offer a number of health benefits that support healthy aging.
The purpose of this resource, created by RIA’s Agri-food for Healthy Aging program in partnership with the University of Guelph, is to provide a selection of recipes that feature Ontario-grown foods and cater to the needs and preferences of older adults living in the community. This resource highlights the nutritional qualities of Ontario-grown food, and why they are important for good health as we age.
Organized by dish (beverages, breakfast, snacks, salads, soups/stews, sides, mains, and desserts), there are over 50 recipes to choose from!
