Activity 3: Nutrition and ageing (approx. 200 words) You have been asked to develop a short 2-minute informative talk on the importance of protein in the elderly to a group of age care nurses. Taking into consideration your audience who have a decent understanding of health and disease within the elderly population, develop your presentation based on the following information, list your answers below. a) The importance of sufficient protein intake in the elderly (e.g. what does it prevent?). b) Protein needs in the elderly (current Australian recommendations). c) Why is there a change in the RDI in the elderly when compared to adults? d) What might a diet look like that has sufficient protein levels for an elderly person? (Provide a brief example of breakfast, lunch and dinner supplying sufficient protein). e) If an elderly person is highly active – how might this impact their protein needs? f) Ensure that all of the above is supported by up to date research (published within the last 10 years). Activity 4: Nutrition in non-communicable disease (approx. 300 words) Jim is a 54-year-old male in a high stress, sedentary occupation. He weighs 113 kg and is 181cm tall.

Refer to the modifiable risk factors in his case and their link to each non-communicable disease referring to research. Activity 5: Nutrition in special needs groups (approx. 200 words) Compare life expectancy and chronic disease statistics of Indigenous Australians to non-Indigenous Australians. You can present your information in tables or graphs. Identify two nutritional components that contribute to these statistics and summarize them briefly. Ensure that you are utilising the latest Australian statistics and referencing your resources correctly.
