Making a food recommendation system for the elderly has the purpose to introduce nutritious food menus to guide nutritionally and promote the elderly to have good health. The system uses techniques that help guide food recommendations to help the elderly make decisions to select foods. There was an analysis divide by behavior given to the system by using a clustering algorithm. After that, the elderly or elderly caregivers are given a rating score using the Slope One Algorithm to predict which is improved with predict error value at 0.11-0.29 and recommend the food menu for the elderly in order to decide on the food that is good for the body by the system developed in the form of a Web application.
