This target group is very different in composition. It includes all ages. The degree of the intellectual disability ranges from mental retarded to very severely intellectual disabled. In addition, there are additional problems in the field of motor skills, senses, communication, behavior and medication.
The nutritional problems are individually determined and very diverse.
The role of the dietitian
Since it’s a very broad group where everyone has their own level of functioning, it’s very important that a dietitian makes a personal dietary advice, which takes the living environment and communication possibilities into account.
