For seniors, failing to eat properly isn’t unusual. One way to help may be by getting involved with meal prep! Assisting your loved one with cooking meals in advance can make it easier for them to get the nutrition they need. Protein-packed foods can help slow muscle loss and keep your loved one from feeling too weak. Think nuts, yogurt, mashed avocado, eggs, tuna fish, or a protein powder added to smoothies. Whole grains can help with heart health and digestion. Remember, many older adults have problems with chewing and swallowing, so you may want to focus on preparing softer foods.
