Good nutrition is important at any age. Healthy eating helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and even some cancers. Good nutrition can also give you energy and improve your well-being, along with improving your ability to fight off illness.
As you age, your life and body change. As a result, what you need to stay healthy changes as well. Certain nutrients become more important for good health in seniors. It is never too late to make improvements to support healthy eating!
‘The Geriatric Dietician’ is a good nutrition resource for seniors. To learn more about key nutrients to include in a diet for older adults, visit thegeriatricdietitian.com/7-key-nutrients-for-senior-nutrition/.
