Share a Healthy RecipeShare your favorite nutritious dish with a senior.
Getting a well-balanced diet to fit into your busy weekly schedule can seem next to impossible sometimes. But for a socially isolated senior, just getting one healthy meal a week may be a stretch due to not having access to good recipes that provide the sufficient vitamins and nutrition they need.
By sharing the specs for a healthy meal, you’re not only bettering their diet, but also their social interaction.
What should a “healthy” meal include? According to most health experts, seniors often fall short on a number of nutritious areas, but meals should definitely include:
- Dairy for calcium and B and D vitamins
- Fruits and vegetables for fiber and potassium
- Fish and other lean meat for healthy fats
