    Please Note: This toolkit is designed to assist health professionals and community workers to

    deliver presentations to older adults. The content used within the toolkit is based on evidence which

    targets older adults who live in the community. Should this resource be used in other settings or

    with a different target audience, the content and delivery may need to be modified to align with the

    evidence for that target audience or setting. Please refer to the Australian Commission on Safety

    and Quality in Health Care’s Falls Prevention Best Practice Guidelines for further information.

    Fuel Your Body Toolkit Resources

    PowerPoint Presentation

    The Fuel Your Body PowerPoint is available for download. This can be used during the session and

    the slides can be changed according to the information you are presenting. The PowerPoint can

    guide you through the session and help to emphasise the key messages. You may also print it for

    yourself and participants if you do not have access to a projector.

    Fuel Your Body Booklet

    The Stay On Your Feet® team have developed a Fuel Your Body booklet which is a guide to eating

    well to keep the brain and body healthy and to prevent falls. The resource provides practical tips on

    how older adults can fuel their body with nutritious foods as well as easy to follow recipes.

    Distribute these resources to participants to support your presentation and encourage them to read

    them and have a go at cooking the recipes. The resource can be ordered from ICCWA Quickmail.

    Evaluation Forms

    Evaluating your presentation helps you and the Stay On Your Feet® team to gauge what the group

    have gained from attending, what worked well and what can be improved. Evaluation forms have

    been provided for you to use. You and the group will also have the opportunity to win a prize if you

    return your evaluation forms to the Stay On Your Feet® team.

    Conversation starters

    The Fuel Your Body conversation starters can help to open a dialogue with older adults about

    eating well and staying hydrated. The conversation starters propose five questions to help you

    begin the conversation.

    Media Kit

    The Fuel Your Body Media Kit provides a media release template and associated information to

    help plan for and promote your workshop to the community. The media kit outlines what to do

    before and after a session and how to promote your session. Download the kit and start planning

    and promoting your presentation.

    Session One: Why fuel your body

    Resources to be used in this session

     Fuel Your Body PowerPoint slides 1-8 (printed or projected)

     Whiteboard and whiteboard pen (if available)

     Printed copies of the Five Food Groups Activity

    Background information for you

    Start by introducing yourself to participants. Encourage participants to write notes on their Fuel Your

    Body Booklet regarding actions they may want to take following the workshop.

    If within the budgetary and time constraints, we encourage you to prepare a healthy

    morning/afternoon tea to encourage the participants to eat nutritious food while partaking in the

    presentation (e.g. fruit/vegetable platter).

    Falls are not a normal part of ageing; they are preventable. Slips, trips and falls are a concern

    among our ageing population with approximately one in three people over the age of 65 having a

    fall each year1. Falls are the leading cause of injury and hospitalisation for people over the age of

    65, with at least 10% resulting in a serious injury or death2.

    Many older adults are at risk of malnutrition3. Nutrition Australia report that a reduced appetite and

    difficulties accessing healthy foods can create challenges for older adults in getting enough

    essential vitamins, minerals and fibre4. Older adults with poor nutrition have higher mortality rates,

    reduced quality of life, reduced muscle mass and strength, reduced ability to perform activities of

    daily living, risk of additional illness and they experience longer recovery times than well-nourished

    peers5.

    Older adults are encouraged to eat nutritious foods from all five food groups and keep physically

    active to help maintain muscle strength and a healthy weight6. Nutrition Australia4 encourages older

    adults to “use every meal and snack as an opportunity for maximum nutrition and find ways to

    improve their diet to fit with their personal tastes, ability and lifestyle”. Eating regular meals from all

    five food groups will help you to get the right amount of energy and essential vitamins and minerals

    the body needs to function all day long.

    The five food groups include:

     Grains

     Vegetables

     Fruit

     Dairy

     Lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts, seeds and legumes/beans.
