Eating healthy food is important at any age because it is the fuel our body uses to maintain health and function. As seniors age, their nutritional needs may change, but the importance of eating healthy does not.
Meeting their nutritional needs helps seniors maintain their quality of life. Unfortunately, aging seniors may lose their appetite, or develop health challenges that make it difficult for them to cook their own healthy meals. In these cases it is important to help your senior loved one with meal planning, cooking, and enjoying their meals.
