Recipe cards were developed in collaboration between the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) and the dieticians from Khoo Teck Puat Hospital to encourage seniors to adopt a diet that promotes brain health and healthy living.
These recipes have been adapted from diets which have been researched upon, such as the Mediterranean and Okinawan diets. The recipes were further localised by running focus group sessions with seniors to discover their food preferences.
The guiding principles for the recipe cards are to find suitable, local ingredients, and to create healthy recipes that are also tasty and easy to prepare. Every recipe has eight ingredients or fewer, and have at most eight preparatory steps.
