Eating Well as You Age

Eating Well as You Age

About a third of older people living in the community are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition. This is not well recognised and individuals may initially believe that weight loss is beneficial- when younger they may have been told to lose weight, but weight loss without trying is never a good thing. It can lead to increasing frailty and decreasing quality of life.

Anne Schneyder was recently interviewed by the Herald Sun about how to recognise and prevent weight loss.
