The role of probiotic foods prompt to increase the quality of life of the elderly. Present study is an attempt to analyze the personal characteristic and socio-economic factors influencing the consumption of probiotic yoghurts. The objective of this study is to encourage consuming the probiotic yoghurt at least once in a day through motivation. Therefore, understanding of the elderly consumers, their nutritional needs, and preferences through knowing socio-economic status, dietary habits and morbidity pattern of different diseases is considered primarily important. In India, the familiarity of probiotic yoghurt is scanty, and elderly people often opt for natural and monotous type of foods, which has led to poor nutritional status and impaired general health. This suggests that Eighty two percent in the current study reported that they were unaware of the probiotic yoghurt. Motivation and counseling is not one time job for making elderly to consume yoghurt continuously but regular new way of conveying methods and remarkable health beneficial effects may win their guts where economic level plays crucial role.
