The Value of Nutrition for Residents 60 and Better

In our golden years, our nutritional needs change. Some members stop going out as much after 60, 70, 80 and beyond, stop caring, lose their appetite, don’t feel like cooking, grab unhealthy options out of convenience, etc. If you feel this way you are not alone. It’s time to quit the excuses. Following good nutritional plans are best at any age but are most important when you are 60 or better. Your metabolism starts to slow, your appetite starts to decrease, and risks of disease/contracting viruses increases. Risk also increases as you age for osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes when your diet is less than healthy. These risks can be minimized with a healthy diet plan and nutritional meals. We carefully plan our weekday meals to make sure that nutritional value is followed to the highest degree. Home Delivered Meals ensures that each meal they deliver is nutritionally paced.

Use Proper Nutrition to Lower Risk of Disease and Illness

As we age, our bodies require less calories to keep us sustainable, and the metabolism slows. This does not mean you require less nutrients to make a full balanced meal. Your body is becoming less efficient at absorbing nutrients and minerals, which makes having access to a well-balanced meal even more important. By following a proper meal plan you can boost your immune system and lessen your risk for contracting the flu and the cold, as well as minimize your risk of heart disease and stroke. Eat well and enjoy a happier, healthier, overall better quality of life.

Nutrition Tips for Those 60 and Better

It’s important to maintain proper nutrition throughout your golden years. You can eliminate risk of contracting illnesses and health-related issues. You can help prevent bone loss, keep your muscles strong, and keep your immune system strong. Fight the common cold and flu each year by ensuring a proper nutrition plan all year long. Our weekday meals either at our centers or through our Grab and Go program can help you have access to at least one healthy meal each day. This is what we strive to provide residents in Morgan County who are 60 or better.
