In many ways, healthy eating stays the same throughout life. Focus on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats while limiting added sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats.  However, some adjustments might be needed. You may need fewer calories due to a slower metabolism, but ensuring enough protein is crucial to maintain muscle mass.

Both can be problematic. Unintentional weight loss is a bigger concern, as it can indicate underlying health issues or malnutrition. However, obesity can also increase the risk of chronic diseases common in older adults. Consulting a doctor or registered dietitian can help determine a healthy weight range for you.

Reduced appetite, difficulty chewing or swallowing, dental problems, social isolation, and medications affecting taste or absorption of nutrients are all hurdles some seniors face.

There are taste-safe ways to add flavor to your food! Experiment with herbs, spices, citrus juices, and sugar substitutes. Using colorful fruits and vegetables also adds visual appeal which can increase appetite.

A well-balanced diet should provide most nutrients. However, some seniors may benefit from supplements, like vitamin D or B12, to address deficiencies.  Talk to your doctor about any supplements you’re considering.

Dehydration is a common concern for seniors, as thirst sensation can diminish with age. Aim for eight glasses of water a day, and adjust based on activity level and climate.

Soft foods like cooked vegetables, mashed potatoes, yogurt, and ground meat are easier to manage. Consider pureeing tougher foods or using thickening agents for liquids. A speech therapist can also offer swallowing exercises.

Focus on nutrient-dense foods for maximum benefit with smaller portions. Staying hydrated and including physical activity like chair exercises can also help with weight management.

Meal prepping on good days can provide healthy options for later. Frozen fruits and vegetables are a time-saving alternative to fresh. Consider pre-cut vegetables or grocery delivery services for convenience.

A registered dietitian can create a personalized plan considering your health conditions, preferences, and lifestyle. They can also help with grocery shopping and meal preparation tips.
