Good Nutrition News

Missoula-based Good Nutrition Ideas, LLC secured a six month, $75,000 Small Business Innovation Research grant from the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. The grant provides the funding for Good Nutrition Ideas to commercialize the nutrition intervention, MenuChoice, for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities who live in community-based group homes.

MenuChoice will be an innovative product based on the popular program, MENU-AIDDs, which was developed in partnership with the University of Montana and the Montana Disability and Health Program. MENU-AIDDs improves the food systems in the homes leading to better weight management, better gastrointestinal health and better dietary intake for the individuals who live there. Over 100 group homes use MENU-AIDDs in Montana.

Good Nutrition Ideas’ president Kathleen Humphries, PhD noted, “We love the results we are seeing for the residents of the group homes who have adopted MENU-AIDDs.  Their quality of life has improved in all the ways that we know a healthful diet brings about.  We want to take the program to the 84,000 other IDD group homes across the nation. The commercialization challenge is significant, but with this award to show feasibility, I am certain we’ll find a solution that works for individuals with disabilities, their families, the residential services providers and their direct care staff.”
