New Year’s resolutions: we love or hate them, make or break them, or feel so discouraged about them right from the get-go that when January 1 rolls around again, we don’t even bother with them. One of the most common resolutions for people of all ages is to try to follow a more balanced and nutritious diet, which is a noble goal, but one that often falls by the wayside when our schedules become so hectic that drive-through takeout seems like a better idea than a home-cooked meal.
Yet healthy eating for seniors in particular is vitally important to their overall health and wellbeing, and well worth a little extra time and effort for the older adults we love. We’ve provided a few simple steps seniors can take today to improve eating habits now, and all year long.
Be sure to check with the senior’s primary care physician as well for guidance, and for recommendations on whether vitamins or supplements are necessary if the senior is unable to gain enough nutrients from food.
