RED DISHES Increase Food Intake
If you couldn’t see your mashed potatoes, you probably wouldn’t eat them. According to the "Red Plate Study" at Boston University, Alzheimer's patients eating from red plates consumed 25% more food than those eating from white plates. With almost 40% of Alzheimer's patients experiencing significant weight loss, this study suggests that the ability to distinguish contrast between plate and food may be part of the reason. Since these findings were published in 2004, some nursing homes have made red plates the norm.
