Nutrition and Seniors

Seniors & Nutrition

As seniors age, many times they may start to eat less and less, or even refuse to eat at certain times. This can be very frustrating for the caregiver and cause serious health-related illness.

Eating Tips:
  • Add Flavor to Food: Due to deteriorating taste buds, some adults no longer enjoy the taste of food like they used to. In some circumstances, doctors recommend adding some extra sugar or salt to meals (unless limited by health concerns!). Check with your physician to see if this is a safe option.

  • Nutritional Supplements: If you are concerned that a senior is not receiving a properly balanced diet, you may want to consider giving them added nutrition with General Nutritional Supplements such as Ensure, Boost, or Nestle Nutritional Drinks. These nutritional supplements come in a variety of forms (cans, puddings, nutrition bars, etc.) and flavors to fit many taste buds (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, coffee, butterscotch, and much more).
