Old People Food

My son has gone off to college and has met many interesting people. While eating in the cafeteria with new friends, one of them announced that cole slaw was 'Old People Food'. When asked to back this up, son said "I've never heard that before, and I happen to like cole slaw". When he told this story at home we were dumbfounded - not that he liked cole slaw, but that there was such a thing as 'Old People Food'. So I googled it, and apparently it is a thing, and it is distinct from comfort food. So, what foods do you think are 'Old People Food'?
