Improving Healthy Eating Habits for Seniors

Improving Healthy Eating Habits for Seniors

As you get older, eating well can help improve your mental sharpness, boost your energy levels, and increase your resistance to illness. As well as keeping your body healthy, eating well can also be the key to a positive outlook and staying emotionally balanced. At Caring Companions In-Home Senior Care, an In-Home Senior Care in Springfield, Missouri, we can guide seniors to healthier eating habits.

When it comes to veggies, choose antioxidant-rich dark, leafy greens, such as kale, spinach, and broccoli as well as colorful vegetables such as carrots and squash. Make veggies more appetizing by drizzling them with olive oil, sprinkling with goat cheese, or frying with garlic or chili flakes. Try it often daily. We have Personal Care providers that can assist you.

Choose calcium for bone health. Maintaining bone health as you age depends on adequate calcium intake to prevent osteoporosis and bone fractures. Good sources include milk, yogurt, cheese, or non-dairy sources such as tofu, broccoli, almonds, and kale. Our Home Health Aide can help you get the right food choices.

Be smart about carbs. Choose whole grains over processed white flour for more nutrients and fiber and cut down on sugar and refined carbs. While our senses of taste and smell diminish with age, there are still options that our Caring Companions can do to make your meals enjoyable.

Avail of the wide range of services our Companionship Care in Missouri can provide, this includes having to enjoy delicious and healthy meals daily. To know more, do not hesitate to ring our lines.
