According to Senior Housing News, First Lady Michele Obama’s MyPlate initiative has its first senior living partner.
Virginia-based Sunrise Senior Living has joined General Electric, The Walt Disney Company, and Frito-Lay as an official strategic partner with the Department of Agriculture’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP).
Sunrise’s 300 senior living communities in America and the U.K. will now pledge “to promote nutrition content, specifically disseminate CNPP’s Dietary Guidelines messages and participate each year in CNPP sessions to develop and execute a joint strategic nutrition promotion plan.”
With this partnership, Sunrise embraces the emerging trends in senior dining toward increased variety and quality, as well as the still-evolving dietary recommendations of the FDA.
