Healthy Eating for Seniors

Here is Julie speaking with residents at Aveo Retirement Village in Adelaide last week. Participants had a great day with plenty of information and ideas about healthy diet and lifestyle for the later years.

Eating well is important at any age, but especially so as we grow older. Avoid fad diets and eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, protein and dairy foods for good health.

The best weight for an older person is a little heavier than what is recommended when we are younger. Losing weight without trying is never a good thing- it can mean loss of strength and muscle. So eating little and often is a great idea- make those snacks healthy ones, eg fruit, yoghurt, fruit bread, home made cakes or biscuits.
