Paying close attention to what we eat becomes even more important as we get older because it is also the time when we are more vulnerable to illnesses. If you are taking care of a loved one who is elderly, you do your best to prevent malnutrition and provide them with a proper diet so that they are filled with the nutrients and energy that they need in order to live healthily.
While learning about proper nutrition is important for each person, what matters is how we apply it in our daily lives. Eating healthy meals should be a top priority, but it shouldn’t end there. If a person snacks on junk food, it can throw off the balance of living healthy, and if consumed too much, it can even lead to health complications. That is why we must guide older adults to opt for healthy snacks as part of providing senior care. Here are a few tasty snack ideas they can munch on:
- Apple slices with almond or natural peanut butter
- Bowl of oatmeal with blueberries
- Cherry tomatoes and mozzarella cheese
- Greek yogurt and peach slices or fresh berries
- Hummus with carrots and/or cucumber slices
